G4L is a hard disk and partition imaging and cloning tool. The created images are optionally compressed, and they can be stored on a local hard drive or transferred to an anonymous FTP server. A drive can be cloned using the "Click'n'Clone" function. G4L supports file splitting if the local filesystem does not support writing files larger than 2GB. The included kernel supports ATA, serial-ATA, and SCSI drives. Common network cards are supported. It is packaged as a bootable CD image with an ncurses GUI for easy use.

I think we should create a menu for that, some people asked me for this. I'll take a look at it next week!
I added multicast support for drives some time ago and Michael included this beta release script as g4l30c on his FTP. Thanks!
so far, there is only support to multicast drives. No images yet. On slower nets you might encounter packet loss (packets will be re-transmitted), but for me the images always where consistent. Just give it a try and maybe play around with the different options to the server/clients.
