I decided I wanted my data drive and OS drive seperate.
I fdisk'd the exact same for /boot, and then did a bit-for-bit copy of
the original /boot, no
apparent problems (although I do notice that there is a UUID that
should probably be
In any case, the / partitions are not the same size, so bit-for-bit won't work.
So I tried to create a new file system with the same parameters as the original
(which FC3 set up for me). Comparing with dumpe2fs, I notice that my attempt
doesn't have certain filesystem features (ext_attr, dir_index). The
don't mention them. How do I enable them?
Alternately, does anyone know where the code in the FC3 installer (anaconda?)
is, so maybe I could see exactly how they do it?
Also, I don't want to mess up the security contexts (a la selinux)...
faithfully copy this kind of metadata?
