Nope, I'll give that a shot. Do you know if there's a general DIY online for this? Even if you bare metal restore after a disk crash using bacula or any other software this would be an issue with Linux. I know it's not an issue for Windows XP or later.

EDIT: Yep - device.map has the old descriptor in it! That may be the problem!

EDIT2: Huh. I just looked into the new HD in the /dev directory and it doesn't have ../disk (etc.) directories in it. I guess those get created at boot time.
