Here's a page that describes the process:
http://digiassn.blogspot.com/2006/01/dd-over-netcat-for-cheap-ghost.html

The only change I'd suggest to that is adding something like bs=1M to
the dd command on the source to speed up reading a bit.

You can also achieve this with dump instead of dd if you want to
change the disk size, for example. When I did it I believe I booted
both sides off a FreeSBIE disc/ISO since it offers a nicer environment
than e.g. the recovery console. The LiveCD option in sysinstall may
also be a good way to go.
