cloning a windows machine
The News before The News » OSS P2V 4 free via G4U
: "G4U or “ghost for unix” is a open-source lightweight NetBSD-based bootable floppy/ISO that enables a disk to be cloned at the raw byte level. Thus it will work with any operating system as it is independent of the filesystem used. As a consequence, the images it creates are very large despite a degree of compression. So how can you use G4U to take a Windows XP installation from its physical host to a virtual one running on Mac OS X?"
