118     <!--empty-line-->
119     <p>What if you don't have a spare local disk or partition or a USB disk? How will you be able to get a backup of your system? Well, if your PC is on the same LAN with another PC running Windows (or linux), you can use <b>Samba</b> to save your image file on that remote PC (which we will call <b>Samba server</b> from now on).<br><br>
120     <!--empty-line-->
121     Using <b>Samba</b> you will be able to mount a Windows share resource (or Samba share resource), from within <b>Clonezilla Live</b>, and save the image file there. Then you can boot that PC using <b>SystemRescueCD</b> and create a restore DVD.<br><br>
122     <!--empty-line-->
123 sng 77 In this page I will demonstrate the creation of an image file by getting a backup of my second disk (<b>/dev/<font color="Red">sdb</font></b>). The image file will be save in my Samba server which is my laptop (ip: <b><font color="Red"></font></b>, Windows share resource name: <b><font color="Red">all_my_images</font></b>).
124 sng 49 </p>
125     <!--empty-line-->
126     <H3><a name="what-is"></a>What is Samba? [<a href="#backup-smb-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</H3>
127     <p>We read at <a href="http://us1.samba.org/samba/" target="_blank">http://us1.samba.org/samba/</a>:</p>
128     <!--empty-line-->
129     <p class="otherpage">Samba is an Open Source/Free Software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients. Samba is freely available, unlike other SMB/CIFS implementations, and allows for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based clients.<br><br>
130     <!--empty-line-->
131     Samba is software that can be run on a platform other than Microsoft Windows, for example, UNIX, Linux, IBM System 390, OpenVMS, and other operating systems. Samba uses the TCP/IP protocol that is installed on the host server. When correctly configured, it allows that host to interact with a Microsoft Windows client or server as if it is a Windows file and print server.

136     <!-- Gathering info -->
137     <H2><a name="info"></a>Gathering info <span class="hideprint">[<a href="#backup-smb-top" title="go to top of the page">^</a>]</span></H2>
138     <p>Before you can use this approach to get a backup, you have to get some info about the <b>Samba server</b>.<br><br>
139     <!--empty-line-->
140     The <b>Samba server</b> I have used for this example was my laptop, so I already knew most of the info required. If this is not the case for you, just ask the owner, user or system admin.<br><br>
141     <!--empty-line-->
142     The info required is:</p>
143     <ol>
144     <li>The IP address of the Samba server</li>
145     <li>The domain on the Samba server<br>
146     This may exist if your PC is connected to a larger LAN (a corporation network, for example). In my case this is empty.</li>
147     <li>The user name and password you can use</li>
148     <li>The directory on the Samba server you can use to save your backup<br>
149     This is the name of the <b>Windows share resource</b> (Samba share resource) as it is known in the network, which is not necessarily the same as the local directory name. The user whose account will be used to login to the <b>Samba server</b>, must have write permission to this directory.</li>
150     </ol>

156     <p>If you're fine with US keymap and English language (available languages are English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese [both simplified and traditional]) or don't mind editing the boot parameters, just select <b>Clonezilla Live</b> at the starting screen and press ENTER. When the system comes up, it will load the program that will preform the backup.
