Use the bootable live linux cd, knoppix. Two good reasons why:

1. Partimage is included on knoppix so there is nothing to install;

2. With partimage, the partitions that you image cannot be mounted when you image them. This means that if you install partimage on a running linux system it will not be able to image it. That's why everbody uses a boot cd with partimage.

Check out this link re partimage usage and other imaging options:

Acronis TrueImage ($49.99 US)

*The only drawback of this product is that you can not backup to a Linux partition at this time.

Acronis True Image Server 8.0 for Linux ($699.00 US)

PartImage can't backup on DVD so I have to mount an empty partition only? wow don't have space here although it's 80GB

seems mondorescue is good but how to get it I'm totally lost on their web
