Hi community,

I would like to transfer the contents of an hard disk
partition,in which is installed FreeBSD (in another partition
is installed NetBSD and another one is unused),to another hard disk.
The recipient hard disk will have only FreeBSD,and is capable to get 
all the data from the original.
I guess I would perform such operation in a way like
disk image software for Windows (System Commander,
Norton Ghost) does.I've seen on previous postings the use
of command like 'dd' or 'ioctl',but I don't know if they
are appropriate or not.
In a few words,my goal is to have a bootable hard disk 
with my FreeBSD and data,like the original one,original one that 
I'm going to use for other purposes.

FreeBSD seekingjob.singles.it 4.9-RC FreeBSD 4.9-RC #0: Wed Oct 15 00:12:26 CEST 2003

For complete information,even in the case you don't need it,
I include the disklabel command output of my original 
FreeBSD disk:

8 partitions:

  b:   532480   163840      swap            # (Cyl.   10*- 46*)
  c: 61432497        0          unused        0     0        # (Cyl.    0 - 4062*)
