Hello


Wondering what is the easiest way to create a complete image of my ubuntu harddrive, command line or gui are both acceptable

In addition, i currently have an Iomega which I use as a back up drive for files and data. It is formatted as FAT 32, would it be an issue to use a folder in this drive for my disc image ?

As far as imaging your drive you can use ghost4linux. You can grab the live cd iso here:

I'm not sure about storing on a FAT32 partition...although I don't see it being an issue. To be sure, just wait for someone else with more experience with that to drop by.
