Looking for equivalent software package to Norton's Ghost for Linux


Hi. Is there a software package that will back up my partitions to an image file for the linux OS like Norton's Ghost backs ups to an image file for Windows partitions?

tar and gzip does the job for me, but if you want an image, mkisofs does that job.

# Generate an ISO from a directory.
mkisofs -vrTJUV "Label" -o foo.iso /path/to/directory

The table of equivalents, replacements, analogs of Windows software in Linux
