no and no.

what I do is use a live cd that has partimage already on it, and burn my partimages onto dvd media from a spare partition as backup. I confirm my images with a simple md5sum.

2) What you need may be a drive image application that can copy the entire drive at once.

Acronis is very suitable for this, but you need the vista edition and it will cost money
