Copying Contents of OS X To Different Drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I could use some help with copying OS X to a seperate drive.
I'm looking to un-partition my hard drive and I copied my OS X parition onto another G4 via appletalk. When I tested the integrity of the OS X copy on the G4 drive (I selected it in the startup control panel) I got a screen at startup with a broken folder...much like a flashing ? mark using an OS 9 folder.

Any suggestions?

I tried imaging the drive, but I can't find a program to do an image any greater than 4 gigs, disk copy and shrinkwrap included. Let me know if you guys have any advice. I remember there used to be a classic app that could combine partitions...anybody remember the name of that? Thanks.
