 'dd' works well and is on all/most *nix boxes. It takes lots of time though, 
using one of the other imaging apps is much faster, if time is an issue.

There are numerous rescue cd's , most ,afaik, use 'partimage' .

Clonezilla, system rescue cd, etc. 

'dd' is a part off coreutils, it is a 'required' package of Lenny.
