I may have missed some earlier correspondence on this and from what I
gather, you want to move a mountain to build another mountain. Two ways
spring to mind. I assume you are unixified.

1. mount a file system for the scsi device via mount /dev/scd?? <mount
point> on machine 1. OK, this is vague. You will need to fiddle to find
an entry in /dev that will work.

2. The other easier method is via ethernet and a cross-over cable.
        o You will need to manually change your network settings temporarily.
Choose an IP address for machine 1., e.g.
        o Set the other machine IP address to Just make sure
the domain part matches.
        o subnet mask
        o The target machine should be set up to allow remote connections etc.
        o ftp, rsync, or rcp from machine 1 to 2.

Method 2 will also work for Windoze and computers with real OS's.I have
a cross over cable here. You are most welcome to borrow it.
