I do this every time. It is easy and does not require any special software.
Just use sudo cp -av while booted off a live cd so that the special
directories under /dev and other places are copied correctly. I never had a
problem this way.

Thanks Peter this looks good, as far as copying the system, but I want to
end up with a dual boot system so editing the /etc/fstab, to change the
first boot drive is probably not for me. After the copy I'm tempted to then
run update-grub, is this too easy? I could edit /etc/default/grub to change
boot order as required. I want this setup in place for more than just 0.28
to 0.29 Also for all future system and myth upgrades.
Its occurring to me that I will have to edit /etc/fstab to auto mount the
new partition. Am I missing anything else?
