    Question Ghost for Linux??


    Hi,

    I have been trying to find a simple way to load up my machines with Linux...and I dont seem to find any good options...

    google search yielded software called Ghost for Linux..has anyone tried using it? if so any feedback is appreciated...

    basically we are looking for a utility which is similar to Symantec Ghostcast on Windows...unfortunately the ghost image created through Ghostcast, errors out when it is pushed onto the new machine with a GRUB error.

    any ideas?

    Regards,

    Linux & Norton Ghost
    by dingotoes - 8/27/07 8:39 PM

    I use 3 computers -- one running XP, second one running Ubuntu linux, third one running Puppy linux. In other words each computer runs its own completely separate OS, with no dual booting involved. On the XP computer, I use Norton Ghost 2002 to clone Drive C to Drive D for backup purposes (works great). Does anyone know if Ghost will work the same way on the linux machines?

    I used g4u - Harddisk Image Cloning for PCs since Ghost didn't work.
