GHOST will do a sector by sector copy, thus reproducing the Ext2 filesystem,
an improvement on datablasting though. Compression eh, curiously the RH6.1
cd image is only 435 Mb but that's beside the point. I'd have to try it out
on high compression to get exact figures for you but if it can't associate a
compression type with the filesystem I'd image you'd end up with a bigger
image . . .

How does ghost cope with ext2? ie can it compress partitions
with the same
or close efficiency that it can fat32 & especially fat16.
I've been pondering stuff like this for a while with the
building a cluster of some description in the event of me
