    Image Backup of Hard Drive?

    I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 and have configured it the way I like. Is there a way I can make a restore image to use for backups? I know there's software like Acronis for Windows to make bootable images, can you do something similar in Linux?

    I use Clonezilla and have no complaints.

    You might try "remastersys" to make a bootable dvd .
