Have you considered using clonezilla? It is based on dd, yet is much simpler for non command line people. I have given a copy to several colleagues and they loved it.

Windoze addiction is self-evident in the question OP asks.
Q to OP: is Clonezilla too complex for your preferences?

The real power of Linux is the Command Line -- why not learn it?

Sheesh!

Q to OP??? The OP posted in 2003! Lots of luck getting a response. Still using Linux? Gone back to Windoze? Place your bets here.

The real power of Linux with the Command Line ..
I totally agree, but it's not for ordinary users. But time has progressed. This approach prevents the normal expansion of Linux users. Command line to leave and do something for the common people :-) It's already time!

I am the "common people" and I use the command line all the time. For most tasks I find it easier than using a gui but then what do I know? I'm just a common people and, what's more, a senior. I guess I'm just too stoopid and too common to use a gui like you youngsters do.

This is the second 7 year old thread I've seen resurrected today. Is this a record?

Hello, I understand that. But not in all cases it is possible. I mean for example a production environment where users interact with a graphical interface and are accustomed to - and so would the GUI tools. It's not so much a dispute about what is better, but that Linux had a command-line high-quality alternative to the GUI - just for those people. By the way - to write a good upgrade for a GUI command line is really difficult issue..
