I want a CD that I can boot on and do a bare metal backup and restore of the current version of Suse.  I have been told that suse's zen ( spelling ? ) can do that.  I am not looking for any perticular software, I just want it to backup and restore well to bare metal.

I am dealing with grub and riser.  

I would like to boot from CD and backup to a USB hard drive.

Any good cloning software can do that.

www.runtime.org

drive image xml and a Barts PE will do the job

It's free and it works.

But so does Ghost and Acronis(but they cost money.

Zenworks has the ability to clone and restore,but it does cost money.(it does a whole lot more than just clone though)

It is easy with windows products.  

Ghost, you have to purchase a later edition.

It is not that easy.
