* g4u 2.3 has been released
This release of the harddisk image cloning software g4u 2.3 includes
updated drivers based on the latest development version of NetBSD, a
complete overhaul of the build system to remove the 2.88MB size limit, and
availability of contracts for technical support over the previous release.
g4u ("ghost for unix") is a NetBSD-based bootfloppy/CD-ROM that allows
easy cloning of PC harddisks to deploy a common setup on a number of PCs
using FTP. The floppy/CD offers two functions. The first is to upload the
compressed image of a local harddisk to a FTP server, the other is to
restore that image via FTP, uncompress it and write it back to disk.
Network configuration is fetched via DHCP. As the harddisk is processed as
an image, any filesystem and operating system can be deployed using g4u.
Easy cloning of local disks as well as partitions is also supported.
