I have a USB stick that boots NetBSD 4.0
I want to make a backup of it. Using DD maybe ?

I tried to do so, using DD but when I DD'ed the other way the stick
was not bootable anymore.

How can I backup my USB Stick ?

What partition did you dd?  Is this i386?
Shame on me. I tried DD under Windows. So that was probably only one partition.
Can I DD the raw device to backup the whole stick ?

Probably.  On i386, use sd0d, the whole-disk partition, I think.

Seems it's sd0d!
Jukka Marin sent me to that direction too :)

Thanks to both of you
