[SATLUG] Live backup / hot imaging software for Linux?

For backups I prefer the native linux utility Dump (/sbin/dump) to backup
each partition.
However I also recently heard about something called Ghost For Linux (G4L),
that you can even get a boot disk for.  I haven't used it though, so I can't
vouch for it.
