i used mondo to burn a dvd with the entire hard disk image ( all partitiions, 
or just the ones you use) and now we duplicate ltsp machines from this rescue 
dvd in 30 min. (on the same hardware) 

if you just want to partition copy on of the partition or save it to a file...

( i use it too, very cool tool :-)

enjoy :-)
