"It finally happened. I managed to get my hands on a superseded workstation that had been replaced by a newer model. This workstation also had a brother of the same model in which the motherboard had failed. So I did what any good Borg would do and mashed the two together to make one monster, multi-cpu, fat ram beastie. The only thing left to do was install Linux on it.

"But I didn't want to start from scratch. I wanted to copy my existing Linux over. The problem being that my current pc was a sata hard disk and my new BorgMonster was scsi. I looked and couldn't find a sata connector on the motherboard so I did the next best thing. I decided to transfer my existing Linux installation across the network to my new BorgMonster."
