Mount remote ntfs partition?



Quoting Scott Ehrlich <srehrlich at>:

> I am looking to perform disk imaging by booting a machine from a
> floppy.   I've used Ghost and the former PowerQuest Drive Image
> Professional, to deal with images on a remote Windows machine.
> I'm now wondering if I can a similar task, but instead of using DOS
> bootable floppies and "net use", replace that with bootable Linux
> floppies, mount the remote share and local drive to local mount
> points, and use dd?   The remote system is Windows (XP Pro)
> partitioned with NTFS.
> The remote system would have a publicly available shared directory
> containing the images.
> Thanks for any ideas/insight.
