You can use dd, feks:
> $ dd if=/dev/hda of=image_hda.iso

>>As long as you use the bs=whatever size you should be able to get it to 
work by either matching the size you are copying from, or specifying a 
larger block size. dd has a lot of options, also don't forget dcfldd. 

Sounds pretty hairy though. 

If I were gonna do that I would do a grub reinstall, use the cp command and 
use vi to edit whatever I needed to edit, but that is just my approach.
