Lets users clone hard disks by using FTP

g4u ("ghost for unix") is a boot-floppy/CD that lets users clone hard disks by using FTP. This is often done to deploy a common setup on a number of PCs. The floppy/CD uploads the compressed image of a local hard disk to an FTP server, and then retrieves that image via FTP, uncompresses it, and writes it back to disk. Network configuration is fetched via DHCP. The hard disk is processed as an image, so g4u can deploy any filesystem/operating system. Users can clone local disks as well as partitions.
