Default copy from one drive to the other without ghosting software


K so I have 2 hard drives, and I want to copy the entire boot volume to another hard drive, through a command prompt.
Disk 1=Win2000
Disk 2=Hard drive i want to copy to..

I have no ghosting software or optical drives either. I was thinking of booting with win98se boot floppy {On disk 2} to get to a command prompt, then typing some command to copy across.

Or is there a way to do it in Windows? (I'm hoping that there is).

Any help?

If you go to the manufacturer's website for you hard drives they should have software to do exactly what you want to do. I know Maxtor does because I've used it on a number of occasions.

Or you can use UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD) which offers command line cloning. And it's free.
