@Guang Chao:

Appreciate the thought . . . but I think this is more like "Time Machine"
or the windows idea of moving the system to a specific place in the
timeline, rather than the clone concept . . . .

And thank you as well, and indeed the name "clonezilla" does imply that it
makes a clone of the system as I saw on Synaptic.  The little blurb for
what it does seemed to mention that it "clones to 40 machines" . . .
something like that, and I only want to clone just one . . . so I was
looking to see if anyone had actual experience with it . . . .

As mentioned before, in the linux world I haven't needed a clone, as the
systems were constantly being upgraded, there was always a fresh install
coming along; but, now in PPC that has gone "static" . . . the envelope has
been pushed as long as it could apparently be . . . so being able to clone
the "what is" . . . into a new HD could be a time saver . . . .
