A guide to cloning (backing-up) your XP/2000 installations using Linux.

This will save you a lot of time next time you have to reinstall Windows.

The reason that this is so useful, is because:

So, you install Windows. Now you have the difficult task of reinstalling and customizing, Microsoft Office, all of your third party software, such as, Adobe Reader, Photoshop, Virus protection, your printer drivers, etc, etc. This all takes a lot of time and effort, especially if you happen to have lost the disk that came with your printer that included the printer drivers. Even worse, you often find that the disk that came with your printer does not have the necessary Windows XP/2000 drivers.

So, reestablishing a Windows system is a royal pain in the ***. In contrast, if you are satisfied with only partially accelerated video drivers, reestablishing Novelle SuSE 10.0, is pretty much all done in 30 or 40 minutes. However, if, for example, you have an ATI video card and wish to install the fully accelerated ATI drivers, this may take you forever, as the installation seems to have been deliberately sabotaged.

On occasions, getting Windows back to the way it was, has taken all day (and sometimes longer). When people tell you how easy Windows is to install, they as lying by omission, as they omit to tell you that the install is just the beginning of reestablishing a Windows system.
