OT: (a bit) copying WINDOZE (or any other disks)



A bit off topic; but, I've got a Windoze box with a failing hard drive;
and an FC3 box (which is working a whole lot better).

What's the recommended process to create an exact duplicate (boot sector
and all) of a hard drive?  Is it really as simple as:
    cat /dev/hda > /dev/hdb

???   Does the new drive need to be partitioned first? Or is there some
other way to clone drives?

Thanks in advance!
