Backing up a Linux PC
I built a Linux PC for my organization to use as an internet kiosk in the front lobby.
It's nothing special. Just a customized Mandriva One old Dell PC. It took me a long time to get working because I wanted a simple user screen - highlighting Mozilla - and a background that looked a lot like Windows so not to frighten walk-up customers. And, of course, a printer.
It was a challenge because Linux is a foreign language where I know enough to order a beer and a pizza but not enough to carry on a conversation.
Anyway I want to clone/copy the hard drive because it would take a long time for me to recreate it from scratch.
The only program I see for this is Acronis TrueImage Server for Linux which costs a outrageous $699.
Is there any programs that you folks recommend?
I've found several sites with complicated scripts. But all of these scripts expect that you know ext1 from ext3 and what parts you want to save.
I just want a simple copy of the whole disk or whatever can give me a bare-metal recovery.
