RyncX & RsyncXCD for OS X

macosxlabs.org - Documentation
RsyncXCD_v2.1 has been released. It is based on the latest release of bootCD. This CD allows you to pull down from your network server a loadset image folder to a machine that has only its hard drive and CDROM as possible boot sources. This CD will let you connect to your server as an Mac OS X client, and cleanly install your image folder onto a volume that later you will boot from. For best results with older machines, burning at 4x or slower speeds is recommended.

Rsync is a tool of legendary power. This may make it very useful for the rest of us. Especially handy for backups across a wireless LAN.
