I boot up with the http://www.sysresccd.org/ and use partimage to save and restore linux / windows . I know it says that ntfs is experimental but I sure haven't seen any problems.

So, if you have linux on the second drive partition one ( /dev/hdb1 ) for example... Boot up with the systemrescue cd and mount that partition so you have someplace to save the image.
mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/images -t ext3

Now start partimage with the command: partimage and select the partition to be saved and for the name: /mnt/images/winxp

When you go to restore the image, be aware that the image name will have zeros at the end of it ...
winxp.000

Did you read the link? It's about how to use Knoppix (a linux distro) which comes with partimage to do exactly what you asked about.

I'm sorry!! this is the strangest thing. I have bookmarked the following link:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=161771

which is the one I put in my first post. From my bookmarks it brings me to the right place, but somehow my post changes it to a MS site?!?! ....


Got it!! The link has a double set of "http://". Even so, how does that get you to MS of all places??
