    hello
    I have debian etch 4,and i tried the backup
    programs comes with it,each one keeps saying
    Failed , all i am looking for is a simple GUI
    backup software, so i can backup my new
    built server after my old one crashed
    and i couldn't save it, so my question
    is what is the best reliable one for backup
    and restore, i said GUI because i am not
    great in command line with linux yet
    i have ghost 4 linux but it doesn't do
    dvd or cd.
    also i have external USB hd if this will work.
    Any help will be appreciated also i hope
    i posted in the right category.
    Thanks very much :)

    I think with Ghost4Linux you can store the backup on an external HDD.

    Thanks again and again

    hello mr/Falko
    to be safe , when i use g4l it gives me choices :
    hda,hda1,hda2 which one should i select ?
    hda or hd1 ?
    also it is confusing little bid where it it says :
    select target/source
    which one to choose first, the
    target or the source ? because i think
    what happen to me first time i used it
    on the old server that i select the
    wrong one so i overwrited the hda.
    so should i choose backup/resore to
    hard disk ?
    Thanks again for your time and help:)
