Backup / restoring with g4L or Clonezilla


Hi,

Have posted before. I am trying to get a multiboot system to work. Linux, XP, Vista. I am now trying to put Linux at the beginning of the drive and the other 2 OS's at the end.

What I don't understand is the restore process using these 2 tools. They both seem to act the same. So, questions:

-Do I need to create the specific partitoins I am restoring to actually be able to select the destination? Seems like I do.
-I have no idea how the restore process is working. Seems like g4L or even clonezilla restores only the boot partition. I created a root filesystem and a linux-swap partition. I started g4l, picked the source, filename, and told it to restore to the correct partition (or so I thought). Went real quick which leads me to believe it is only restoring boot.

How do I selct partitions to restore and where they will go? How is this darn process working, I have no clue. I am used to Norton Ghost and I AM A WINDOWS ADMIN. No linux experience.

HELP! I am DESPERATE!
