Don't use cp, use cpio--cp will cause you to create copies in place of
links (so you could end up with several copies of a single file on a
disk). With GNU findutils and GNU cpio:
find . -print0 | cpio -dpmv0 /mnt/gooddisk
Note that you should do this from a boot/root floppy (i.e. so you're not
copying the virtual filesystems, etc.). Also, make sure you remember
all partitions on the disk.
