same disk geometry

Hi,
   I want the second disk to have the same geometry
as the first disk.  I ran this command but got this
error:
prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2|fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s2
Partition 0 not aligned on cylinder boundary: "       0      2    00          0   6291936   6291935   /"


Does anybody know how to configure the second disk to
have the same geometry and same partition as the
first disk on solaris 8?


thanks

With dd
Example:


dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2 of=/dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s2 count=128

and the disk c1t1d0s2 is same as disk c0t0d0s2

Run format.
Choose the disk you are happy with.
Go to "partition"
Name that partition table with a catchy name ("name")
Quit (quit)
Choose the other disk (disk) and go to partition again (partition), there select the partition definition you saved previously (select).
Write that partition to the disk (label) and quit,quit.

I like the dd better because I can automate it with a script,
