FREE Linux Based Disk Imaging (Ghosting) at its Finest!

I am in love! That is right, I am not ashamed of it. I am in love with PING (PartImage is Not Ghost). I have been searching for quite a while on a free alternative to Ghost Cast for my personal home network. Well I found it. I was using DriveImage XML, but PING can do the same job, better and also support Linux!

Not only that, but it is very versatile in that there are many ways you can use it. You can use their boot CD (Download the ISO here), and create/restore images from a network file share, or directly to a disk. They also give you a tutorial on setting up a PXE boot server (On you home Windows XP machine if you want!) and create/store images to the same file share but without the need for boot disks.

You can find the full tutorial on using PING here!
