Hi Ubuntu Community:

How do I clone my operating system, programs, and program settings, like on an ISO, so that I can easily install it on another machine so that the other machine looks exactly like my cloned machine?

Thanks,

I use Remstersys to make a copy on CD/DVD http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/ and use that when I want to reinstall. Is that any help?

That is pretty cool. I'll study up on remastersys!

Thanks!

Just a note , be sure to install " ubiquity-frontend-gtk , before using remastersys or it might not work to be able to install the backup ...
