My old Win2K installation is on /dev/hdb1, including some programs that
I simply can't get to anymore.  Does anyone know of a quick and easy
(yet reliable) way of duplicating my Win2K installation from /dev/hdb1
to /dev/hda1?  I've considered trying to use the cp command in parted,
but that probably won't work since parted only operates on one device at
a time.  I've also wondered if the dd command might be the way to go.

Can anyone give me any suggestions?
Re-read the documentation for parted's copy command. I'm almost certain that it can copy a partition on one device to a partition on another. I think there's even an example that describes exactly how to do it in the online help (don't have my parted disk on me at the moment, but check it out).
