Partition(s) image copy
Can anyone give me advice on how I can make a restorable copy of a complete Linux system (not data)?
I want to install Linux on a disk, configure it appropriately and then make a copy (ideally to a bootable DVD) so that I can revert to that installation at a later date.
I understand that I will probably need to copy (and eventually restore) the MBR, the 'swap' area and 'root'. I may probably also need to copy '/var' & '/usr' although I am not interested in backing up or restoring any data.
I have done this sort of thing with Windows in the past using Ghost but don't know how to do it with Linux.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for the speedy response - I will pursue both, PartImage and SystemRescueCD in particular sound ideal.
