I need a Linux "ghosting" program for Disaster Recovery.   We use Ghost for our Windows environment, but it doesn't quite work well with linux.   Specifically we are building linux Trixbox/Asterisk servers.   We've used ghost and it seemed to work, but we had a few goofy errors come up in the restored image that we can't seem to get rid of.

I'm looking for tried and proven Linux cloning software (shareware preferred, but not required.. if its worth its cost.).   We've tried Acronis Disk Cloning with no luck, Ghost 11 and all version prior.   My last resort is to using a RAID card setup as Raid 1.   Pop the mirrored drive out and put it on the shelf then have the box re-mirror to a new drive.   I'd rather have a software cloning program setup.

Users with real world experience with linux cloning only reply.   Please don't list sited of links to software that you've googled.   I'd like to hear your experiences and recommendations.
