LIVE MACHINE CREATION OF SELF-DUPLICATING IMAGE-HARDDRIVE TO INTERNET-SERVER

I used SelfImage [excelcia.org] recently to dd [die.net] a windows 2003 box to an LVM-based virtual machine on Proxmox [proxmox.com], a Debian-based Virtual Machine Server. Worked a treat. While I see the benefit of created a Microsoft VHD if you're an MS shop, we're a mix so being able to pump a live physical disk into a remote logical volume was great. http://tech.slashdot.org/story/10/02/09/1811250/The-Hidden-Treasures-of-Sysinternals?art_pos=1
