Disk image sw for linux (..like ignite for HP-UX, Drive Image for Win)

I'm trying to find sw that will image a linux system for disaster recovery, system duplicaiton, etc.
Something like Ignite-UX for HP-UX or Drive Image for Windows.

I found a product called "Instant Recovery 3.0" ... any experiance with this product?

Any other products you can suggest?

Thanks,
Masaki

There's also Make CD Recovery:

I have not used it, can't vouch for its quality...

..and don't forget that the newer versions of Norton Ghost support the ext filesystem.

Thanks for the suggestions,
I am trying out "mondo" right now. So far it's looking good.

In addition to the above, you might want to look at the OS/GPL package:

"partition image"

dislaimer: I have not personally used it, yet, but it has a fairly high freshmeat popularity ranking.
