ghost 4 unix

Has can anyone walk me through on how to use ghost 4 unix to write an image to a network harddrive? I can write images from the network hard drive to a pc, using the slurpdisk command. However I am new at this, and the images on this network hard drive were created by someone else. I am not sure how they did this. Everthing is already configured correctly like the ftp server to connect to the network hard drive. I just want to know the command to use to write another image to the hard drive. There are already images on the hard drive and I don't want to write over them somehow. If that is possible or not.

What is your need? Do you want to clone the drives over the network? Clone Zilla is better than G4U or G4L then. I recently discovered that Clonezilla is much faster than g4l.

Hi linuxlover.chaitanya,
Thanks for the reply but I would rather use ghost for unix, instead. I guess I don't know what I want to do. I have two laptops with windows xp pro on them and I want to copy a image of them to a iomega network hard drive using ghost 4 unix. That way if the hard drives get screwed up I can just use ghost 4 unix to put back the image they originally had. There are images already on this network hard drive, I just don't want to write over any of them, which I don't think I can do. I noticed when look at them images on the network hard drive. None of them are seem to be over 4.16 GB. Is that because ghost for unix compresses the image when it is writing it to the network hard drive. When I look at the laptops the used space is at 10 GB is that going to matter when I write the image to the network hard drive, will it compress it down to a smaller size? The thing I don't understand is, what I am suppose to do. Use uploaddisk or uploadpart for the command? So, I get my laptop with xp pro set up, create user accounts, download software that is used on them. There now they are ready to go, now I want to make an image of them to a iomega network hard drive. Do I want the whole hard drive or just a partition?
