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 then created a boot floppy for a new machine identical in hardware on the golden client.
I put in the boot floppy and the cloning process completes successfully.
But when I reboot the machine it stops at
Loading DMI pool dataÖ or something like that it says
Loaded the machine from live-cd and ran the following commands
Anyhow I tried to fix this by booting clone machine 1 from knoppix live-cd
root@0[dev]# mount -t reiserfs -o rw /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
root@0[dev]# grub-install --recheck --root-directory=/mnt/hda1 /dev/hda
Probing devices to guess BIOS drives. This may take a long time.
took out cd and rebooted. got passed the grub loader properly this time and started loading
up debian but early on it got this error message
/sbin/init: 426: cannot create /dev/null : Read-only file system
/sbin/init: 427: cannot open dev/console : no such file
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init
can anyone spot anything Iím doing wrong here?
I cloned a machine using the above process which worked perfectly.. the only difference being it was a ext3 filesystem instead of reiserfs.. ideally Iíd like to keep reiserfs if possible.
I have 20 machines to clone.. and if I donít sort this soon Iíll have to install each one of them individually which will take a long time since there is allot of special configuration.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
Anything at all even give me other suggestions how I might do this.
I am doing the same thing.
I cloned a server running Suse OSS 10 with Symantec Ghost ver 8.2.
The cloning itself work fine, ghosting to.
It boots up and runs, no problem, but...
Eth0 suddenly becomes eth2 (since there was and are two ifīs).
That is the if conf for the "master" host works for the clone but pops up as two new ifīs.
But for cloning symantecs ghost works.
I have also tried g4u (Ghost4Unix) wich is freeware.
The if problem remains thoug.
If you try it and solves it, please tell us.
