backing up linux to DVD
I fear for my Linux server. The harddrive fall over and die again on me.
Is the anyway of backup up the drive image to a DVD-R? remotely
How would manage to do that?
-The drive HD drive is 6gigs. 2 gigs full.
-The remote machine is a Xp laptop with DVD-R (4.7gig disc's)
-The Server is purely mandrake 9.1. With 1 slow DVD reader and NO floppy.
If it is possible. I would be looking for making a bootable dvd which copys the image to the harddrive. VIA boot software on the disc.
There is norton Ghost. But I can imagine it could not do this.
Down to it might need a OS/dos to run.
Many thanks if you can help me.
(wish it is as simple as BeOS, lol, if u know what I mean)
