In that case:
Thanks for the suggestions 40hz but I also looked at SelfImage, the problem with that is it requires Windows.
So to get the use of one program I'd have to create a minimal BartPE which would still end up being well over 100MB in size, (the Aspire One has no ODD or even HDD, so the space would have to come from the 2GB flash) - rather a bit of overkill for something as simple, (relatively speaking), as a drive imaging program.
I was almost about to use either Damn Small Linux
and end up with a fully functioning OS with applications as a side product but in the midst of all the chaff I found PING (Partimage Is Not Ghost)
Hopefully this will be exactly what I'm after.
Thanks once again for the suggestions, I probably should have been a bit more specific in my initial question or just asked for a freeware replacement for the DOS version of Ghost, (the version I have doesn't seem to support Linux filesystems).EDIT:
Typical! As soon as I find a suitable program, (which works rather well), someone comes out with a program for the Aspire One - Acer Aspire One Backup
