Installing system imager in fedora 8


Hi everybody!
I have a problem (of course doubt). I want to install systemimager in my Fedora 8 (Desktop edition). Can anyone tell me how to install and how to make the image of my system.
Any answer would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance..

1) Read the 'Documentation'
http://wiki.systemimager.org/index.php/Main_Page

2) Get the packages *noarch.rpm
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=560199

3) Install with # rpm -Uvh <package> <package> <package>
or place all packages in a new folder and use
# rpm -Uvh *

Also see the README

All documentation is in /usr/share/doc/systemimager-*
o Read at _least_ the HOWTO section of the manual:
1) "cd /usr/share/doc/systemimager-*/manual/"

Thanks for your replay.
When I try to execute this command
rpm -ivh systemimager-common-* systemimager-server-* systemimager-i386boot-standard-*
It gives the following error message.
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(XML::Simple) >= 2.14 is needed by systemimager-server-4.0.2-1.noarch

I downloaded XML-Simple-2.18.tar.tz and tried to install, but it is not installing.
I have one problem here, that is, I am unable to download the rpms using ftp. When I try to download .rpm from a ftp source instead of rpm file i can see a text like file.

Very Simple ..... try this ....

# yum search perl-xml-simple

# yum -y install perl-XML-Simple
.....
If you don't get it installed, this address still works
ftp://ftp.muug.mb.ca/mirror/fedora/a...fc8.noarch.rpm
.....
