    Hi,

    Is it possible to use the boot CD-ROM to create hard drive backup images of systems that are all in DOS (no Windows)?

    Thanks,

    M

    Yes. You can image any drive/partition from the Boot CD, regardless of the operating system.

    Thanks, but would you make an exception for Server Operating systems? (Windows 2000 Advaced Server, etc). Is'nt that why there is a separate product for Servers?

    As the rescue CD is concerned, no, there is no difference between a "server" OS and a "non-server" OS.

    Now if you want to be able to install the software in Windows and image the system while Windows is running or use any of the additional functionality of the Server version of TrueImage, then yes... there is a difference.

    When using the emergency disk mode in Linux, what are the minimum system requirements? Are they the same as they are for the regular Windows mode? More specifically do I need to have 64 megs of memory for it to run in Linux mode?
