Is it possible to make an exact duplicate of a hard disk. I saw something 
here the other day which looked similar to what I'm after, although I 
didn't know it at the time.

What I basically want is to be able to copy one disk, to another 
(obviously), where the disks are on the same SCSI2 controller, and should 
be the same model drive (exact model not known at this time).

This is for backing up to another working drive so that one can be 
replaced if the other one fails (or something like that). The ability to 
go back the other way is not necessary.

Thanks, Iain...
