I have used partimage's ntfs support in the past, and it worked ok.  These 
days I use (and recommend) ntfsclone.  I have done multiple backup/restore 
to different disks with it.  

If the ntfs partition is bootable and the starting sector changes you will 
need to modify ntfs's starting sector.  This isn't normally a problem for 
me when windows is installed on hda1.  

If you do have problems booting after a move or restore see
