OK people i got a problem that is bugging me.

i have a freebsd 4.3 machine that i use as a router. It has NATD a firewall,
samba, apache...all setup nicely. But the harddrive is doing its best to die
on me. I am installing a second hdd with the purpose of doing an exact copy
of the original drive.

What would be the best way to go about this?
would dd if=/dev/acd0 of=/dev/acd1 work?

guidance needed in this area....
