Question HD to HD an HD to DVD backup image

Douse anybody mined me asking about what might be an old question but one I'm having trouble finding answers to about backing up or imaging a harddrive to a harddrive and to a DVD within fedora 8 gnome?
I see allot of programs that work as live CD but I need something fore a one time backup and only really know how to use the desktop and sum terminal.
Also I cant spend allot.

O I'm editing cause I found what I was looking fore at

I was trying a backup solution using the "dd" command but the kind folk on here recommended "Parted Magic." A very small and neat liveCD distro which contains many many useful tools. I tried it and it worked beautifully so I pass on the recommendation.
Partition Image is the tool on the CD which makes copies / restores images of your HD.
