more backup woes

From: Daniel Webb (

Since I can't mount the ext2 partition, I have tried something else

I am now trying to send the raw partition over ssh to the other computer.
Here is what I have tried:

>dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/dev/stdout | ssh user@host "cat - > dest_file.raw"

when I run this, it brings up the password promt, and then soon after the
error: "dd: /dev/stdout: no space left on device".

Is there another way to do this?

I am about to give up and buy one of those IDE->laptop cables, because it
does not seem that there is any way to accomplish this task with Linux.
