Thanks for that.
I keep my LTS install on a separate drive atm, where I'm looking to dual boot Fedora 13 and OS11.3 on another drive, but having that backup image will come in handy, I'm sure.
But this way I can mangle my "practice" installs and configs without damaging my primary.
Right now it's all about learning the Linux file structure and what are considered "best practices" by the community.
Thanks for sharing Arup.
