Your question is a bit lacking in detail but I'm guessing you want an image of your hard drive ? ... take a look at 'dd', if you just want a backup try clonezilla.

Do you actually want a CD/DVD image of the files on your drive, or just a disk image?

That's a nice idea. I remember PCLinuxOS offered (and probably still does) an easy way to do this. It would be nice to have a live CD option where you create the .iso, and then can later reinstall it to your hard drive from the live CD.

Yes it does. Debian and Ubuntu as well as its derivatives have remastersys. Since the OP gives no information on his distro...?
