 * g4u - Harddisk Image Cloning Version 1.8 ("Pumpkin") released

g4u ("ghost for unix") is a NetBSD-based boot-floppy/CD that allows one to
easily clone PC harddisks by using FTP. This is often done to deploy a
common setup on a number of PCs. The floppy/CD offers two functions: it
uploads the compressed image of a local harddisk to a FTP server, and then
it can retrieve that image via FTP, uncompress it, and write it back to
disk.  Network configuration is fetched via DHCP. As the harddisk is
processed as a image, any filesystem and operating system can be deployed
using g4u.

Changes: The 1.8 "Pumpkin" release was synced with NetBSD 1.6, and
includes drivers for USB, RAID cards, Gigabit Ethernet, and Token Ring, As
a Halloween special, it comes with an ISO image file in addition to a
floppy image, so it can be booted from a CD instead of a floppy.
