There is another fine working way, if you have another Computer with enough
harddrive-spaceh and a proper filesystem (ext2 or ext3) handy:
Connect both computers via ethernet.
Boot both computers with (A) with linux, the one to be saved (B), use Knoppix.
Now connect B with A using ssh (this is needed to excahnge the ssh_keys)
Whne connection is established, do this:
rsync -avz Source-IP:/ Destination-IP:/Path-on-whreyou-want-it/
Now all Datas are saved. Now you can very easy use parted or some other, or
format youre partitions new, whatever.
When finished, do the same backwards.
This works very fine, with no data loss.
For more info chack rsync manual.
