Actually, my terminology was quite precise. I assume what you refer to /root is typically /dev/wd0a on a bootable IDE drive, or /dev/sd0a is the bootable drive is SCSI. Otherwise, /root is merely a directory, not a partition.

Again, given that /dev/wd0c or /dev/sd0c both covers the entire disk and is accessible, why not clone it instead of each individual partition?
