You can create an image using dd:
Code:
dd if=/dev/hdXX of=/mnt/otherpartition/hdXX.img bs=4M
I know of no way to create a bootable recovery CD, though again, linux could restore this image.

Well, you'd just need to mount the network server's exported drive and put "of" there. To restore it, just reverse if and of.
