Maybe some of you will be interested about this patch: The patch contains these features: * Output clone status when using in pure text mode, i.e. No GUI (with parameter "-B gui=no"). * Add lzo (-z3) as the another option besides gzip and bzip2. lzo is faster when compressing and its image size is s...

Re: Image of entire disk ala G4U

Maybe you can try clonezilla:
http://clonezilla.sf.net
It can save and restore entire disk via partimage, and both unicast and multicast mode are available.

It makes us clone an 3 GBytes image to 40 clients in less than ...
