Super Duper problem, won't erase target drive

Hi

Looks like Super Duper is a Super product, but I'm having a problem you may be able to help me with.
I have two iMacs, iMac #2 and iMac #1, both running OSX 10.2.8. I need to copy the entire contants of the Hard drive on iMac #2 to iMac #1 and I downloaded the trial version of Super Duper per a recommendation on the Apple Support forum. So, I installed Super Duper on iMac #2, I started iMac #1 in the Firewire mode by holding down the "T" key on startup.

I connected iMac #1 to iMac #2 with a firewire cable and then the hard disk of iMac #1 appeared on the desktop of iMac #2. I started Super Duper and selected COPY "iMac#2hard disk" TO "iMac #1 hard disk" selecting the script "Backup All Files". When I clicked on "Start Copying" I enter my password and verify that I want to ersae the hard disk on iMac #1, I receive a error message that says, "An Error Occured While Erasing iMac#1 Hard Disk, do you want to see the log file. Here is a copy of the log file, any ideas to help me out on this....

The problem here is that your install of OS X is incomplete, and for some reason you're missing some of the basic Unix tools we need to operate. The only real solution is to archive-and-install Jaguar, then update back to 10.2.8 with Software Update.

Once that's done, SD! should work just fine.

Hi Dave

Thank you so much, I will do a re-install of Jaguar as you suggested, and take it from there, Thanks again for the help....

And just a quick question, will Shirt Pocket essentially do what I'm attempting, that is to copy ALL of the files and programs from one iMac to the other ??

Take Care

Yes, it will... note, though, that copy protected/activated programs won't run without re-activation on the new system.
