How to take a clone to tape?tape is bootable?
 
Hello,

How to create bootable image from a running linux system(i.e clone the system)?


If taking an image is applicable,then can we take the image on a tape?can we boot from the tape?

There are tools like live-helper to create a live image from running system.
