About:
Partimage Is Not Ghost (PING) is a live Linux ISO based on LFS (Linux From
Scratch). It can be burnt on a CD and booted, or integrated in a PXE/RIS
environment. Several tools that make it the perfect choice for easily
backing up and restoring whole partitions are included. It supports
backups to and from SMB shares, backup of BIOS data, the ability to blank
the local admin's password, creation of bootable restoration DVDs, the
ability to partition and format a disk before installing Windows, and
more. 

Changes:
NTFS filesystems were not being resized to the maximum size that the
partition could contain, though logging reported such. An occasional hang
on some systems when it came to mount NTFS partitions was fixed. For an
unknown reason, using NTFS-3G drivers rather than native kernel drivers
seems to resolve the issue. The kernel was updated to Linux 2.6.22.4. Some
more network and S-ATA/SCSI drivers have been compiled.
