    Default Ghosting...


    So I wanted to know if there are any apps out there that can work on
    Linux and use/create former actual Ghost images. For instance, here at
    work, we have a couple of images we use for all of our initial system
    setups. Nothing special. However, I'd like to work in my system with
    just Linux. I still would need to be able to run some type of imaging
    software that can use the Ghost images already created and throw them on
    new systems.

    Likewise, when I go to create an image backup of a computer to be
    destroyed/severely modified, I would need to make the images in a Ghost
    compatible format so my coworkers can work with them if needed in the
    future.

    Is there such a software available in Linux... preferably free of
    course.

    Mark

    Take care to also install using a file system your image software can
    handle.. most do ext2/3 and reiserfs. LVM and other fs types can get
    trickier..

    If you are using a recent version of Ghost you could probably use it
    just as well for Linux, ext3 looks like your safest fs option : 'Ghost
    compatibility with Linux' (http://tinyurl.com/4wrdlu)

    Have you seen this project : http://sourceforge.net/projects/g4l
    (Ghost4Linux)

    This might also give some insights : 'Good Things To Know When Imaging
    Linux To Different Hardware' (http://www.diwi.nl/node/12)

    Partimage is also a good OSS alternative & if you want Spartan style..
    go dd

    Happy imaging!
