Installed Solaris 10 on a box here at home.  How do I backup up the drive completely and safely?

For Windows I've been using Norton Ghost imaging.  What do I do with Solaris 10?  Thanks.

You could use flarcreate to take a complete backup. Ace blog post here by Ben Rockwood about using the aforementioned to do pretty much what you're after too.

good idea, maybe a 64 GB flash drive will work

this Flash is not related to flash drive, but just the name of the backup method I assume.
