    like WOW!

    "nbdsrvr
    What is it?
    NBD-Server is a program for sharing an image of a filesystem or a partition on your system with an Linux system over a network.
    This nbd-server can run on a Microsoft Windows system"

    It might work, it might not - that driver is (exactly!) 6 years old tomorrow. I'd also be careful about the command line you use - one typo and you tell it to use the wrong partition, which could be embarrassing. I'm waiting until we get around to reimaging our workstations until I give it a try. We'll see if it works or if there's too much networking traffic created in just mirroring files.

    I'm just trying it out but I'm confused over

    "filename must be a disk-identifier. Something like: \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0
    for the first phsyical(!) disk, \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE1 for the second
    physical disk, etc. When using a physical disk, you can can enter a
    partition-number. Default is partition 0.
    For example.
    nbdsrvr \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0 9000 0"


    what/where are device IDs in winxp?

    The where: I expect they are listed in 'Device Manager', select properties for a given device and then look on the details tab - the drop down list gives things like Device ID, etc.

    EDIT: Just downloaded and looking through the readme for ndbsrv and I'm not really sure if the 'disk-identifier' mentioned is the same as the Device IDs. Best be careful!

    clearly we're not the only ones having these crazy ideas:

    Virtual Large-Scale Disk System for PC-Room
    SpringerLink - Book Chapter

    cept you have to pay to read the whole thing

    found this on technet

    Microsoft Windows may report event messages in the event log for various hard disk device issues using the following syntax:
    The device, \Device\Harddisk#\Partition #
    if I do

    Code:
    c:\>nbdsrvr \bob\bob 9000 1 
    nbdsrvr v0.2 (c) 2003 by folkert@vanheusden.com
    connection made with 192.168.0.8
    error opening file \bob\bob: 3
    failed to close handle: 6
    or

    Code:
    c:\>nbdsrvr \\device\harddisk0 9000 1 
    nbdsrvr v0.2 (c) 2003 by folkert@vanheusden.com
    connection made with 192.168.0.8
    error opening file \\device\harddisk0: 53
    failed to close handle: 6

    There another distributed file-system called Tahoe. It's looks really good and pretty easy to setup.

    More info here...
