I've done it using a bootable Linux distro (Knoppix) & rsync. A little
trial & error to create an initrd image containing the correct SCSI
drivers was also necessary. (That and reinstalling the bootloader.)
I actually need to revisit this method in the not-too-distant future for
a Linux server I'll be virtualizing. Let me know if you want more
