Why not just use cpio in passthrough mode to make copies of the contents of those filesystems? For example, to copy an ext2 filesystem mounted on `/home' (assuming that partition 1 = /, 2 = /usr, 3 = /home) to a second disk that's been already been partitioned:
mount -t ext2 /dev/hdb3 /mnt # Mount the new /home
find . -depth -print0 | cpio --null -pvd /mnt
(BTW, this is covered in the info pages for cpio under `Concept Index' -> `copying directory structures'.)
It's not Ghost but it's works. And it comes with the OS!
Worth a try.
