Josh, Sounds good. From the flow of the script I could figure that it does provide status for partimage. However, the comment on the webpage suggested the contrary (I can see it updated now), which is why I was skeptical about the script. I will take your suggestion on checking the updateflag.awk script.
Thank you for the input, appreciate it.
