Re: OT: Bootable disk images

There is another way of making bootable disk images, though it is rather messy, and that is to use
a disk mirroring card. IDE Raid cards are available in the UK for £20-£30 and they will,
in theory
anyway, make a perfect copy of the original disk. Ideally two disks should be the same size, but
so long as the source is smaller than the mirror it should work. You end up with partitions of the
size of the original disk, but there is no reason why they cannot then be enlarged using partition
management software. I have done this once, successfully.
