Can someone please give me the exact command to copy the microdrive to a CF in the CF slot such that when I take the microdrive out and replace it with the CF all that I have will be there as though no change has taken place.

I guess it will be something like

cp -R /dev/hda1 /mnt/cf

but I'm not sure and I can't test it until I've swapped it out so would appreciate a concrete answer to save me trying then swapping back and forward.

How shuold I partition / format it?

It's a 3000 with PdaXrom.

I would boot into DB mode and then copy from there

mkdir /mnt/hdd
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hdd
tar cvf - /mnt/hdd/* | tar xvf - -C /mnt/cf
