Best Program to Ghost My Hard Drive


Hi,

At the moment I'm running Ubuntu (Hoary) on an old 40GB HDD, I want to upgrade this to a new Hard Drive I just ordered. Is there any way I can ghost the entire hard drive to save me having to reinstall everything, and back it all up again.

My computer isn't too fast, so it takes a while sometimes

Thanks in Advance for any help

Thanks a lot! That looks like what I was looking for

I'll try it out as soon as I get my new HDD.

Let's say I use G4U (or similar) to ghost/clone my existing FC5 drive (27GB IDE drive) to a new drive (e.g. 200GB IDE drive). How do I get to use the additional space once I'm back in FC5? I'm new, so be gentle. :-) I'd *like* to be able to resize my primary partition (it's LVM) from its current 27GB size to be the full size of the new drive, but if that's not possible, I'd like to at least add another partition for data storage. Thanks!
