Hi All,

I'm looking for a way to create a restore image of my linux box.  I'm looking for something that can create a complete image of the harddrive on to CDR's and then allow me to restore the system from a total disk crash?  I see lots of people using dump and tar, but not sure how this can be restored if you lose the OS?  Anything similar to Drive Image in the Linux World?

Thanks
Bret

You can dump you OS (win, lin) on boot cds with symantec ghost. I'm using modified version of ghost 7.5. If you are interested and you need aditional information let me know. Restore is very easy. Inserting first, second, ... cds and you are having you system resotred in few min.
