I have a small box with exchangeable HDDs. On one HDD I have a Suse Linux install I want to back up to a network drive and then copy it onto another drive inserted into the box. (i.e. boot from diskette with network capability, map network drive, make drive image with Ghost, shutdown, exchange HDDs, reboot with same diskette, map network drive, use Ghost to 'download' image onto the new drive). Everything seems to work, but after copying onto the other drive, the Lilo boot menager is totally messed up and produces bits of text in the middle of the screen. I have copied the whole drive and set Ghost to include boot sectors etc in tne image. Any advice what could be causing this problem and how to solve it?
