i have just bought a usb-ide adaptor and am trying to back up a hard drive (sector by sector so that i can keep the mbr) but i have two problems
1. the drive is not recognised by ubuntu (i know it works as it is shown in windows)
2. i dont know what program to use
after i back the drive i also want to be able to install puppy linux on it but i should be able to handle that
also how does dd go with this type of backup
thanks
