Clone Harddrive

I have a shell only FC2 computer, no GUI. The harddrive is failing. It's a 10 gig.

I have a 1 gig harddrive I would like to just some how dd the old one to the new one.

I hooked up the replacement drive as hdb and tried

dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb

and it ran for a while but when I tried to boot on the new drive I got a bunch of errors. I assume its because its a different size hd.

Anyway to do this?

Thanks

I dont think 1gb will be enough to do a backup.

Thanks.

I'm trying to locate a bigger drive.

What would be the command if I find a proper drive?

Thanks

Not sure what you mean by see the hd connected.

What I want to do is copy the entire harddrive image to a new hardrive.
