Symantecís Norton Ghost 2003 is the latest rendering of a product that has become many a Windows administratorsí mainstay over the past few years. Iíve used previous versions, but had never attempted to use it with Linux until the release of this version.

The front of the box reports that it works with "XP Home/XP Pro/2000 Pro/NT WS/Me/98" and leaves Linux out of the equation altogether. Not surprisingly, Linux is not mentioned anywhere on the box, and anyone who has worked with the operating system for a while knows that the Window-ish interface shown on the back of the box as the GUI for the product is never going to pop up under Red Hat.
