Clone HDD image and install using PXE boot


I just finish setting Fedora 10 system including all the config that I like. I back up the image by using dd command.
Code:
dd if=/dev/sda of=~/disk1.img
Now, I already have an image. My question is how do I clone this image to second unit by using PXE boot server? I already have PXE boot server and it works since I installed Fedora from network (PXE boot). Anyone has a link to show how or suggestion is appreciate.

Thanks,
nodopro

Thanks for those links thorkelljarl. Like I said, I can use dd command to backup the image or clone to second drive. However, I am looking for a way how to use PXE boot.

A few ways. To be exact you need to pxe boot the remote to some OS and some application that can return the image. netcat could use dd but you'd need a small OS to pxe boot. You can pxe boot knoppix using knoppix terminal server and then use any of the knoppix tools. You can pxe over g4u or even ultimate boot cd and use any tools. Use pxe partimage. Just kind of how you want to do it.
