Just because it was brought up.....

Can Norton Ghost, run from a floppy be used to clone a FreeBSD disk? 

(SCSI -> SCSI)

  I clone Thinkpads all the time with G4L. I haven't used G4U but from what I 
gather it's what G4L is based on (either the code or the concept - not sure).

  You can clone everything including the recovery partition no problem.

  The only snag I've run into doing this is with some of the older systems that 
shipped with a 15 head hard disk. You can clone them all you want but it has to 
be to another 15 head disk. Same limitation applies regardless of the cloning 
software.

  I usually use an ftp server to store and retrieve the images but I've done it 
direct to the new drive via a USB enclosure also.

  Any ideas on cloning an IBM T60 Thinkpad with G4U (Ghost for You)? The
  T60 comes with a recovery partition. First I killdisk the drive,
  re-install Windows XP. Then I want to capture an image with G4U so that
  I can clone other T60 machines. Is this possible with G4U? My present
  imaging software, Imagecaster, fails.
