I've been using partimage from the SystemRescue bootable CD for a while now: Before that, I used PowerQuest DriveImage for years, but since I've gone "Linux Only", and since PowerQuest was bought by Symantec, I wanted something open source, and partimage more or less does exactly what DriveImage did.
