You probably don't need rsync, but need dd:

dd if=/dev/master of=/dev/slave

This will move the entire disk contents of /dev/master to /dev/slave.
Probable name under RH 7.3 are /dev/hda for the master.   You should double 
check the name of the slave before running the command, or you could overwrite
