Steven Shiau is a researcher at the NCHC (National Center for High-performance Computing), Taiwan. While there he wrote parallel and distributed program to simulate plasma. This program formed the basic idea for the future development of the free software DRBL (Diskless Remote Boot in Linux), a rapid deployment software for distributed PC cluster and education environment. With Kuo-Lien Huang, Ceasar Sun, Jazz Wang and Thomas Tsai, he developed another free software “Clonezilla”, an open source clone system. He is the project leader of the file system imaging tool “Partclone”. He is also one of GParted developers, maintaining GParted live. The project DRBL won first place in ‘Public Sector Applications’ category at the Free Software Contest in France in 2007. He is the division leader of Software Technology Division at NCHC now, the Chair of the Board of Directors, SLAT (Software Liberty Association of Taiwan), and spends most of his time in the development of DRBL, Clonezilla and promoting the use of free software and high-performance computing.

* Hacking Clonezilla!

Clonezilla is popular for system deployment. However, there are some limitations. E.g. the destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one, software RAID/firmware RAID is not supported, or the image can not be explored. So any workarounds for them? In this talk we will describe and demonstrate the workarounds about breaking the limitations.

* Creating Your Specific Live GNU/Linux Distribution with Debian Live Build

How to use Debian live build to create a specific live GNU/Linux distribution. It will be illustrated by these 3 live distributions: Clonezilla live, DRBL live, and GParted live, special live GNU/Linux distributions for system imaging/cloning, diskless linux, and graphical partition editor, respectively.
