Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I recently used clonezilla to make a backup image of hdd, before doing factory restore, now the image is of not necessary as I can image the restored computer (Acer Aspire 3620).
Is it possible to extract image to blu-ray and make bootable as in live-cd?
I don't know about Virtualbox, but I've read that at least for Vmware there is a possibility to transfer a complete installation into a VMware virtual machine. As far as I know this is mostly used for Windows servers.
But what do you want to do? why not perform a complete new installation inside Virtualbox?
I'm not able to read the information in the image,because it is an image.
When I imaged hdd I didn't do partition and now I'm wishing I had.
I actually want information from 1 of the partitions that I can't get as an image and really don't want to buy another hdd for laptop to put the image on.
I have a 40Gig drive for my other machine, I think I'll put it on that hdd atleast I'll have access to it, to copy the partition with info.
It was my first time working with CZ, now I know choose partition to partition.
well, Clonezilla seems to have it's own format. Unfortunately the documentation of Clonezilla says
- The destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one.
- Differential/incremental backup is not implemented yet.
- Online imaging/cloning is not implemented yet. The partition to be imaged or cloned has to be unmounted.
- Software RAID/fake RAID is not supported by default. It's can be done manually only.
- Due to the image format limitation, the image can not be explored or mounted. You can _NOT_ recovery single file from the image. However, you still have workaround to make it, read this.
- Recovery Clonezilla live with multiple CDs or DVDs is not implemented yet. Now all the files have to be in one CD or DVD if you choose to create the recovery iso file.
so you'll actually have to restore the complete partition.
Thanks alot I'm going to copy to another hdd on my other computer,
I just need to be able to mount it, so I'll do that later on today.
Then I can copy info to dvd.
The image totals 11G but it was clone of 40G hdd.
Thank you for your help.
