[WBEL-users] Disc cloning

for testing purposes I want to make a clone of my current 80 gig IDE
harddisc. What I have done so far:
Connecting another 80 gig harddisc to the IDE controller, booting the
system with Knoppix (a linux version on CD-ROM) and entering the command:
dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb
It took about 2 hours then dd was finished. First it seemed to do the
job well, but the last partition on the new hard disc, which was hdb6
(/home) was completely messed up. I guess this is because the hard discs
are not completely identical, they are both 80 gigs but from different
vendors, therefore probably different number of inodes etc.
Any suggestions how to make a clone disc?
