HOWTO: Creating Images Of Your Linux System With SystemImager
I have written a tutorial describing how to create images of your Linux system with SystemImager.
SystemImager lets you create images of your installations. So you can make a backup of your systems, clone your systems (if you have to maintain more than one machine with exactly the same software), or even distribute your software over the internet. To do so, you need an image server (should have enough disk space to store your images) and a so-called golden client (i.e., your "perfect system" of which you want to make an image). This means that you have to install some software on your image server and on your golden client in order to run SystemImager. SystemImager provides Debian packages as well as rpm packages for rpm-based distributions such as RedHat, Fedora, SUSE or Mandrake. In this example both my image server and my golden client are running under Debian.

I took a look at Systemimager back when I was starting to need to image systems. To me Partimage makes much more sense. Hard disk space is so cheap these days that you can split a new disk into two, and image the newly installed system onto the second partition. Some colleagues even made themselves a boot disk which would automatically restore from the backup partition - they could restore an entire office in next to no time.
