    When you get a bit more advanced, I'll show you how to write a script that will do this for you, until then you have to do a few commands....first

    <insert original disk>
    dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/tmp/disk.img
    <insert backup disk>
    dd if=/tmp/disk.img of=/dev/fd0

    There ya go!

    Ahh.. I love it when something simple works..very good..now I tried it this am. I used a terminal and entered the commands as given, it wrote out the records and then said hit any key to continue. I put the target disk in and it wrote the files to it. I rebooted and Viola! it worked...

    You can also go to KDE control center,Yast2 modules,System,and create a boot disk there.This is for SuSE 7.2.For SuSE 7.1 instead of System click on Boot Configuration to make a Boot Floppy.
