If it does a decent enough job of making (basic) images, it should work
on disk replication for workstation installs no? I'm thinking of using
it to setup a workstation as we would completely for a desktop and then
image it off for dupes to additional stations. These will be fairly
basic setups so I'm hoping it can do the job for me. One plus, is where
I work, we use a mix of Macs, Windows 2000 and some Linux boxes (thanks
to yours truly) for some server tasks. Again, haven't tried it, but from
the web page it sounds like it's just what I need.

I haven't tried it personally, though will soon enough, but you might

Seems to be like a Norton Ghost type program for linux that supports
many filesystems including XFS. Sounds pretty neat.
It works OK but it lacks drivers like raid and some scsi controllers.

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?
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
