    Well...you can use dd. Or you can (maybe better) tar the files and burn the tar archives. This will save you some space and allow you to omit files that you don't need as well.

    Thanks for the reply.

    It seems that Norton Ghost also works with some Linux file systems. Has anyone tried using Ghost 2002 with a reiserfs file system? According to the symantec site 2002 is not yet compatible with reiserfs but I'm just wondering if anyone has tried?

    Norton Ghost Linux Image

    zba78, were you able to create an image of your Linux partition? I would like to do the samething and have an image handy just in case I screw something up. I don't want to have to re-install Linux and all the rpms if I don't have to.

    Thank you
