"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 192.168.0.100
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 192.168.0.101 (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."
