    What is the best way to make a 'image' of my iBookG3. It is running 10.3. At work I use Symantec Ghost for the Winblows machines, and we ues Ghist Explorer to edit the images if needed with out placing it, editing, the dumping the image again. Is there any application (cheap if possable) to do the same thing here.

    Thanks
    Joe

    Carbon Copy Cloner? Makes an exact duplicate of your Hard Drive, including hidden files. The price is right (free!).

    I don't have a mac (yet:) but in Linux you can use the DD command:
    dd if=/dev/hda1 of=myimage.iso
    Obviously that would make an iso, so the size would have to be the same on the destination you'd want to put it later. Anyone tried this?
