Decided to take the plunge and got a new 32GB A-Data CF Card today....

Want to do this swap the right way and hopefully easy way....

I assume that I can 'clone' my current Debian EABI setup on my existing 6GB microdrive over to the new 32GB CF card, right?

Would this be the right way to do it?

1) Format new 32GB card and make 2 partitions; ext3 (/dev/hdc1 /mnt/cf) and a small swap (512MB on /dev/hdc2 /mnt/cf2).

2) Copy over current microdrive debian contents on hda2 over to new ext3 partition on 32GB CF card by doing:

CODE
#dd if=/dev/hda2 of=/dev/cf


* Note: hda1 on my existing microdrive is my swap partition.

So, is this correct way???

Thanks!

Mark
