I'm about to get a bigger disk for my machine (all other hardware
remains). What's the best way to transfer the existing system to the
dd if=olddisk of=new disk won't work since different sizes.
cp -r will probably mess up links and special devices.
If I can avoid re-install and cp -r /etc /home /var /usr/pkg /usr/pkgsrc
then I'll be happy. :)
Thanks in advance,
