I second that! If you are thinking of using Ghost - why not go for the 
open source built-for-linux equivalent - Mondo.

It is a great tool - very easy to create isos of your system - then use 
them (bootable of course) to reinstall on your second system. You can 
even change drive geometries before the reinstall if you want!

I really don't understand why people love Ghost so much but are 
tentative when it comes to Mondo. As with most open source products 
compared to proprietary products - you will probably find that Mondo is 
faster, cleaner, more reliable and definately cheaper than Ghost!
