If you find one, let me know...

I was thinking of just making a small linux install on a floppy, enough to
mount harddrives and cdroms, and run an nfs client... I guess you can dd the
partition without mounting pipe it thru gzip or something and store it over
nfs? I dunno how succesful the restore would be...

Subject: [plug] Linux Ghost alternative?

Does anyone know if there's any apps similar to Ghost, but free (for 
non-profit use at least), and preferrably Linux based?

ie; Something to back up and restore partitions (incl Windoze), preferrably 
with compression.
