Norton Ghost Tutorial

Radified has a great tutorial on using Norton Ghost to image a hard disk for complete backups.
Ghost is a cool product that I'm educating myself about in order to make backups on CDRW. The goal is to be able to put in the first disc, boot up and restore my drive completely (including the Linux partitions).
- from Symantec...
Norton Ghost 2003 and earlier, or Symantec Ghost 7.5 and earlier do not support cloning Linux computers that use the Grand Unified Boot Loader (GRUB) because Ghost 7.5 and earlier cannot patch the GRUB. Restored systems using GRUB cannot start. To repair the restored computer, start the computer with the disk you created during the Linux installation and follow the instructions for re-installing GRUB.

For related information, see the document Cannot start Linux with GRUB boot loader after restoring an image of a disk or partition.
