How to create image using PQDI boot disk? (rhel v2.1)

First of all, is a PQDI disk for windows also works for linux (rhel v2.1), i.e., can i use to create an image for linux (ext2) partition?

Ok, I have installed red hat enterprise linux v2.1 booting up no problem. now i want to create an image of it.

So I inserted the PQDI v5.5 boot disk and start my system (I used this disk to create/restore Window's image no problem), and I can get into the menu without a problem.

However, when i click on "create image" and select where to place my image, I cannot find anything except A: and CDROM! I cannot find the linux partition I want to create an image for. How can I get around this? I cannot even find another partition (Windows partition with NTFS) as well.

Any words or suggestions are apperciated. Thanks!

PQDI is... Power Quest Drive Image
it is used to take the image of a harddisk
so if i want to revert the system's back to a state I want 5 days ago (i took an image), i can do so in 5 minutes!!!

Norton Ghost for Linux do similar things!
