Re:Will it be able to save a laptop diskimage to D

Posted by: Administrator on May 20, 2006 08:22 AM
To create your image you could use either ntfsclone or partimage. There is a couple of options on how to save the image depending on what hardware you have. One would be to use Knoppix and save your image onto a network drive (either samba or nfs), or a usb drive. Both tools are on knoppix. The other option is to save the image onto another partition and then burn onto a dvd using puppy linux or DSL, both of which can run from a ramdisk and have dvd burning software. I don't know of any small distros that include cloning tools and burning software. Knoppix can run on a ram disk if you have 1G of ram. Hope this helps.
