Thanks for your indications, but my goal is not to install a *new*
system on the SD, but to *transfer* the current one to the SD.

I guess it may be done from the FR itself... but I'm afraid it's
difficult to move things from the very live system you're running.

To do that on a desktop system, I would boot to single user
first... but what about on a FR ?
