Ideally I'd like something similar to what I have for my Windows machine, namely Acronis TrueImage or Powerquest's DiskImage. Both those packages can take a disk image of a running system without user interuption. ie. no need to run off of a bootable CD or in DOS mode or anything. Has anyone found something similar for linux?

So far I've found Partimage ( Any others you can suggest?




AFAIR, PQDI won't do ext3 or reiserfs (unless versions later than 5 do) so with windoze tools you're left with Ghost. Boot to Bart's network boot disk and kick off ghost I suppose.
There are a coupe of linux tools for dumping to CD but (as ever) YMMV.
