THESE FOR ME.

Howto and Info links:
i know several people that i talked to in the past recommended me using
"dd" to make an image and to work from it. use a livecd like Knoppix,
Ubuntu, DSL, whatever to work from so partitions won't be mounted. copy
things over a network to another computer to work from or to an external
looking back over these makes me want to test some of them on an old
drive. let us know how this turn out and be sure to keep careful notes
as to what you are doing. this will help you out now and others later.
if i get a chance later i will see if i can dig up any decent
information that might help. this is all i had on hand.
