I don't use one, Tim.  This machine never sleeps

Next question that I don't recall seeing an answer go by in this madhouse, 
(the machine is currently busier than a one legged man in an ass-kicking 
contest, kmail even went away by itself a few minutes ago) when the copying 
is all done using rsync -avcAX, ( I didn't have enough space free to use dd) 
I presume that I'll need to do a "grub-install /dev/sde", at least that is 
the plan.  Then fix the /etc/fstab file on the new drive, powerdown, pull the 
sata0 cable and move the sata5 cable to sata0, and it should then boot from 
this new drive.

Have I missed anything?

Cheers, Gene
