"This tutorial shows how to install a SystemImager server and a SystemImager client, both using Ubuntu 8.10, and how to create/update/restore/delete images.

"1 Preliminary Note
I'm using an Ubuntu 8.10 server with the IP address as the SystemImager server here (I refer to it as the "Server"), and an Ubuntu 8.10 system (can be a server or desktop, depends on what you want to back up) with the IP address (I refer to it as the "Client"). This IP address can be static or assigned via DHCP. I will use the switch -ip-assignment replicant when I create the image; this means that if the client has a static IP adress and you restore the image, the restored system will have exactly the same IP address; if the client got its IP via DHCP, the restored system will get its IP also from DHCP, so the IP can be different after the restoration."
