Hi there I have optimised and configured a server running fedora 5, I would like to have a backup of this setup so I can use the backup as a instalation input to another mechine, i.e. a kind of snapshot of the current installation which I can store on disk.
any tips ideas
Try Norton Ghost. It makes image from your hard drive and compress it into a file. It's just like an iso image from CD. You may have problems with grub but it can be easy repaired with Ubuntu live CD or fedora rescue CD.
Hi there is there no free linux based tool to do this or internal tool distributed with linux which would be able to snap shot the entire installation and configuration preferably as a iso image I could use
