GHOST for Ubuntu


hello

I need to ghost my hard drives with ubuntu installed on the supposedly Master drive.

Is there a program similar to Norton Ghost?

How do I install it and run it?

Thanks in advance

Use Partition Image part of the SystemRescueCD; http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page

Just burn and use the CD image, it is a bad idea to clone a live system.
The 'Live" Ubuntu CD should have Partition Image available also.

Really? - I mean, you're asking how to apply a specific technique but don't communicate your goals and restrictions.

As always in life, there are alternatives to be considered. I.e., as a software installation developer, I'm heavily using Microsoft Virtual PC (you can store or undo changes made to that virtual hard disk at any time) -- in the Linux World, VMWare or even XEN might be analogous...

(We had worked with Ghost before there was Virtual PC.)

BTW, I just came across Linux SystemImager. Should have similar features to Ghost.

You can also download and install Cross Office Demo and then install Ghost. If all goes well then purchase Cross Office. Just started playing around with Cross Office and it's really neat.

This is what laladatingaling is tyring to do, right? http://www.ehow.com/how_2246485_ghost-computer.html

So how do VMWare and Xen play into this?

Do virtual machines need a boot floppy/cd?

What about Ghost for Linux? http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Syste...inux-053.shtml

Oh, I didn't think to check the date. How does one close a thread?

Thanks.
