how to take a install image..?


Hi all
i have a SuSE10.2 with Xen as a host OS and Windows OS as a guest on top of it.
I want to install SuSE enterprise version just for testing.So how can i take the image of present install so that i could retrieve back to it after i finish testing with enterprise version.

cp -a fromyourimage toholdingtank. This will perserve ownerships and times and stuff and allow you to restore your image without any fuss.
