Partimage Is Not Ghost

Partimage Is Not Ghost (PING) is a live Linux ISO based on LFS (Linux From Scratch). It can be burnt on a CD and booted, or integrated in a PXE/RIS environment. Several tools that make it the perfect choice for easily backing up and restoring whole partitions are included. It supports backups to and from SMB shares, backup of BIOS data, the ability to blank the local admin's password, creation of bootable restoration DVDs, the ability to partition and format a disk before installing Windows, and more.

            That is precisely what PING does :)

            I would agree
            Partimage is not Ghost. I tried to use Partimage to replace the licensing costs of Ghost, but you have to perform too many steps and various tools to get the same outcome. Ghost resizes, makes the correct file system and partition all in one. Someone should modify partimage to include scripts that would resize partitions, format file systems and drop images in the same time Ghost can accomplish this task.
