I've commented already on Clonezilla above, but another nice utility that has worked well for me is FSArchiver. It archives everything on one or more partitions, then you can easily restore the archive later, or restore it to another drive as long as the partition numbering is the same, and FSAarchiver doesn't care if the replacement drive is smaller or larger than the drive the archive originated from. It may be worth checking out if you plan to do quite a bit of imaging/archiving and restoring in the future. It's generally best to run it from a liveCD, just like with Clonezilla.
