I'm new to Linux, and now that i have by box set up where im comfortable. id like to know if there is a program out there like Norton ghost. Something that i can image my partition/hdd and use it to restore "when" i do finally manage to crash it...(i know its bound to happen).

So if you guys know of anything please feel free to chime in and share...

If possible, something thats a bit user friendly, Ive olny been at this for a few days.

You can use G4l, I believe the actual version is 0.28. It works like Ghost or True Image. I never had a problem with it.

Gparted is a great utility.

Thanks Ericyzfr1,

Would it be possible to break down the download process? So far all, the only way that i have been able to install progams and what nots has been by following how-too's...

Id like to learn how and where to get programs... Im doing ok with the basic terminal comands (chmod, ls, cd...) but i dont have the knowlege to find and download/install stuff.

Thanks in advance



Im 99.9% done with Windows...
