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.

Hello, i did google this and there were results on the process, but the sights weren't clear of exactly what it would accomplish ect. So i'm posting this here, just to be sure of what to do to get my desired results.
OK, Previously being a windows user, i'd make my backups with system image files, and when i had separate partitions it was still good because it would include all partitions including linux. If i ever needed to restore my previous file, i could with my windows recovery disc. I have gone pure linux now though and do not have a windows partition anymore.
What i was wondering, is how do i achieve an equivalent result from linux, where it backs up all partitions, and how to i restore my computer with this image file?
Hey again guys, thanks for the suggestions. I downloaded Clonezilla last night but for some reason my laptop wouldn't boot it; i checked it in desktop and it booted with that, so i guess that won't work. I haven't looked at Acronis yet. Doesn't Linux have some native tools to do this, command line or gui? Even Windows had it's own tool to do this.
