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.

Just a quick question. I like to work on machines remotely. Right now, I am scanning a windows machine for viruses from this machine using smbmount and f-prot antivirus. This setup works really well. Here is my question:
Is there a program that I can install on this linux machine, which will allow me to clone a hard drive to another drive on a remote windows machine?
Well with partimage you need to create an image and then extract it on another machine. Into the /dev/XdY which you don't have from a remote connection, all you have is /mount/point
Based on the enthusiasm of his response, I think he has access to the "remote" machine. If so, he can either boot System Rescue CD and use it to restore the saved image, or he can boot some other Live CD that has partimage on it.
