GHOST image ?????
 
Hi all
Can anyone explain how can i take Ghost image of my entire system. I am having SuSE AS host with XEN included and a guest OS running on top of it.
So what would be the best way for that.
I have some problem in connceting to network aswell and i dont have a cd/dvd writer so where can i store the image...?

Thanks in advance

There is a free utility similar to Norton Ghost that can ghost a linux machine.

And there is the dd utility.

To store the image, you need something with adequate capacity---how big is the drive, partition, etc. that you want to copy?

I think most people would simply ghost to another harddrive
