check out either dd command or www.partimage.org

Partimage does not image the drive but partitions.

as long as the new partitions are equal or larger than the old there is no problems.

dd is the ultimate Linux power tool. Take a look at the thread here by Awesomemachine.

To clone one HD to another of the same size:

dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb bs=1024

This copies every bit--mbr and all---from drive 1 to drive 2

(makes me kick myself for ever BUYING Ghost for Windows...)

Make sure you understand the syntax first...dd will be equally happy destroying your entire system.....
