duplicate CF card using dd
I have a computer that boots from a CF card that runs NetBSD. I would like to duplicate that CF card to other CF cards. I only have one external USB CF card reader (Kingston, part #: PCREAD-USB/CF) so I am using dd to copy everything from the master CF card to the host computer (running OpenSUSE 11) then putting a new CF card in the reader to copy the master image to it, again using dd. Here's my command:
From master CF card to hard drive:
dd if=/dev/sdc of=cf_card
dd if=cf_card of=/dev/sdc
Shouldn't dd work for my purposes? The original CF card works just fine when booting from it. Is my dd command wrong?
