Making ISO Image
I would like to make a backup image of the OS so just in case the HD fails ( god forbid ) then I can open the live cd and restore the image and im backonline. I have a extra HD thats a backup so I can store it on there how would I do this ?
Thanks for your help.
Probably wouldn't be making an iso image in this case. If you want to I think Symantec Ghost will let you image an ext3 partition now. It's a good piece of software. It will compress the image down to a gig or two if you're not "ghosting" the user data partitions.
There are a few open source image projects on Sourceforge, one that sprang to mind is Kasper, but I think it's still alpha. Try Partition image, looks good bu I haven't used it myself -
Just reading up on it and Ghost does not support ReiserFS as such, but will be able to clone the entire disk as a disk, but will not distinguish or interpret the partitions itself.
Thanks for your kind help.
native linux software is perfect for the task of backing your system up. if you want to create a liveCD of your system then take a look at catalyst but its not for newbies!
