I haven't tried it personally, though will soon enough, but you might
want to check out Partition Image for linux - http://www.partimage.org
Seems to be like a Norton Ghost type program for linux that supports
many filesystems including XFS. Sounds pretty neat.

I was wondering if anybody had any luck with tools to do automated
custom installs of systems with XFS filesystems. The choices I have
seen all don't meet all of our needs...
1) Norton Ghost - does not support XFS
2) Systemimager - does not support XFS out of box. apparently Austin
Gonyou has got it to work
so I might be able to replicate this...
3) RedHat kickstart - does not allow customization of installed disk
(ie, Ximian, extra software, config files).
4) some hack with tftpboot, nfsroot, xfsdump/restore - ugly and hard to
any others? any successes?
