But will this image copy? I need the entire operating system, everything that will allow me to take the copy HD and just replace the working HD and not go through any kind of special booting procedures.

I'm not sure you want that, perfectly, unless you'll be putting it on another *identical* machine, same motherboard and CPU (and same revisions on both).

I have a legacy (RH 7.2) system and need to make an image copy of the hard drive. If this machine goes down (hard drive gone) there is no way for me to rebuild the applications. Can anyone out there help please?

Um, buy a small hard drive (the newest big ones won't be recognized properly by the older machine's bios), put it on IDE2, shut the apps down, and copy all of that (*eigh*, except for /dev....)
