The Process

The first step is to make an image of the source machine. I recommend g4l, Ghost for Linux. There are some detailed instructions on g4l available, but the basics are:

  • Download the g4l bootable ISO and put it on a CD.
  • Boot it on the source machine.
  • Select the latest version from the resulting menu and start it up (you have to type g4l at the prompt).
  • Select raw transfered over network and configure the IP address and the username/password for the FTP server you want the image transfered to.
  • Give the new image a name.
  • Select “backup” and sit back and watch it work.
