Ok we have setup and configured the first of the Linuxathome.net Box's cmpletely and we are trying to ghost it onto the network in order to make the rest of the machines from this image.

Only problem is no matter what we select when we put the image back on to the blank machine it kernel panics on boot and can't find partitions etc :(

Does anyone have any ideas? The data on the system is 2.8GB (approx) and we don't have the spaces or a spare drive for a 40GB image of the entire disk.

My last choice tomorrow arvo is to purchase a 40GB drive myself to keep as the IMAGE HDD, and I really can't afford to do this.

Help would be greatly appreciated :)
