    like making copies of a hard drive to put on another computer that is exactly the same. like what zenworks can do i guess is the easiest way to explain it.

    ok. understand now. I don't know the best choice though. I have used clonezilla to make copies of partitions but I don't recall if it had more sophisticated functions for deployment and managing them. You may want to look at it if nothing else.

    DD works well. You can use a live CD. I have followed this how to for windows. After using DD, I just run fixmbr for windows installs. The bad thing is you need a Microsoft Window's media to run the fixmbr, using recovery console..

    I have been told, and have read this can be done on a running linux system, proceed with caution.

    DataDump has been dubed DataDestroyer if you reverse input and output devices!!!!!
    Nothing is ever easy, but if it is difficult you must be doing it wrong.

    Re: imaging

    what about for multicasting? Like we have laptops that we want to put everything on it and then create an image and put it on the server. then if a laptop has to get new hard drive, etc we will have an image to put on it.

    thank you
