Creating a Drive image


I have just installed Fedora and updated everything, I would like to create a image DVD for a easy reinstall / backup plan

what is the best way of doing this.

In windows i have used Drive Image and found it very useful.

Couple Options

Here are a couple ghosting options for you.

Ghost For Linux.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/g4l
Haven't tried this one, but heard good things about it.

Partimage

Fantastic tool. Cumbersome at first, excellent when figured out.

And don't forget the wonders of 'dd'. A good tutorial can be found at:

Hope these steer you to what you're looking for.
