    as MelDJ said this is one way

    here is another way
    check out the following site it is GREAT and has a lot of good info
    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/remastersys

    I checked the web for drive image and found a free one "Disk Copy" you will have to burn it to a CD and boot for it. I have not tried it but it sound like what you need. Read the sites infofor more info about it
    http://www.easeus.com/disk-copy/

    If you do not like it search the web for drive image

    Good luck and have fun

    Clonezilla. I swear by it.


    Backup a full disk/partition(s), create an iso, burn, and you have a working backup on a bootable CD.
