Using ghost to image Ubuntu onto clients
I was wondering if anybody has any information/ recommendations for imaging Ubunto on to up to 50 client machines?
The hard drives that are in the machines are 320Gb but the image is only around 20Gb.
As i understand, as this is a Linux based OS and doesn't use Windows partitioning, we would have to do a 100% of disk copy. Is this correct?
If so, then i imagine this would take an extremely long time to image and the turnaround time is not very long at all.
Can anyone suggest another way other than creating the image on a smaller HDD?
If anyone can help asap, i'd be very grateful!
Many thanks in advance,
