I am looking for the easiest way to copy a fresh working FreeBSD 8* HD
install (Manolis version) to a bigger HD that I found.
I plan to have the new HD in the same box for doing this copy.
Can I use sysinstall to make the new default slices on the big HD and
then move the OS and directories/files to them?
What command (utility) do I use? dd or cp or some other to copy the files.
