clonezilla-live is the one to look at. It's an iso image that you can 
boot (or alternatively a zip archive to install on a USB drive).  You 
just boot it, optionally mount some storage space via nfs, smb, or ssh, 
and let it copy the disk to an image with enough info to re-create it.

The main clonezilla project does the same things but is geared toward 
network booting and mass-cloning of the images.
