Re: Moving MacOS to another disk

Put the new drive in, boot to macos, use disk tools (on Apple's FTP) to 
partition the mac parts and then just drag and drop the system folder. Windows 
could take a hint with this one :P

Hi folks,

sorry if this is slightly off-topic, but I'm completely MacOS impaired :-(

I have a mac68k that has a small internal disk (with MacOS installed) and

a larger external one (where I put NetBSD).

Now I got another disk and would like to replace the small internal one with

it - so I need to move MacOS completely onto the new disk, and then run

the installer again to add a NetBSD partition.

Now the simple, stupid question: what do I need to do to copy over the old,

small disk to the new internal one and make it bootable? I found how to select

the boot volume, but the new one is empty.

I want to remove sd0 later and move sd1 to scsi id 0. I don't seem to have

any partition editors installed, but I have a working internet connection ;-)

Any hints?
