I plan to restore Gutsy - please check out my plan
I've given Hardy a chance, and from what I gather it is working well for most, but not me. Gutsy worked ace, so I'm planning to restore my old Gutsy setup. Before I do though, I'd be grateful if someone with more in depth knowledge could double check what I plan to do.
Basically, I have two hard disks. Gutsy is on my secondary disk, which used to be my primary until I replaced it because I thought it had failed (the plug came off and I have to confess I didn't check until I went to install the replacement). So I can access all the files from my old hard disk, but can't boot from it. Hardy is on my new primary disk.
Here's my plan.
1. Delete my entire file system using a well published command that blows everything away (if I do that will bash still work?)
2. Copy everything exactly as is from the root of the secondary disk to the root of the primary.
Will that work? Will all attributes (permissions etc) come across OK?
