So, I'm still preparing for my 'big switch' to a dual boot system and I've been trying to see how I will make backups to a spare HD with Clonezilla. I downloaded and burned the image for the "Live" CD and it boots nicely. But... it leaves me with a bare command prompt. No graphical interface (that's only in Gparted) and no way to even figure out what the names of the drives are. How do you know what the names of the drives under *ix are? Is there a command to list available drives? Even if they aren't mounted?

And I've noticed that under Gparted the bootable partition of the second HD is lost. Apparently GRUB is designed to hide multiple bootable partitions. Is it still possible to mount that 'hidden partition? Or is there any way to bypass this 'hiding' feature so I can make backups onto bootable partitions on the second HD? I want to have a BOOTABLE replacement HD, not just backups that have to be restored to be used...
