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.

C: W2K OS drive - worked,

Did full disk backup of 3rd drive and restore - worked.
Did 3rd drive fat32 partition backup and restore - Worked.
Did 3rd drive resiserfs partiton backup and restore - worked.
Tried file/folder restore in fat32 partitions - worked.
Can not do file/folder restore for reiserfs. Knew this constraint. Can do only partition backup and restore.
Also tried backup/restore partitions using rescue CD - worked. Can not do file/folder restore - Knew the constraint.
All of the above created backup as an image file.
Have options for compression. I tried Normal.
Backsup only used space and uses compression.
Speed - good. Usability - good. Reliability - good.
Price - Good value for W2k and Resiserfs/ext2/ext3 environment backup/restore.
I like it as far as I have tested.
I think ghost does not do reiserfs backup/restore.
