I'd seen that but I never saw an advantage over hand rolled
solutions. Off list I got pointed to SystemRescueCd, a Linux based
distro, and two key programs on it:

# QtParted  is a Partition Magic clone for Linux.
# Partimage is a Ghost/Drive-image clone for Linux

QtParted worked perfect, I'll try Partimage sometime which I expect much
better than dd because it only transfers the blocks that are in use by
the FS, it also incorporates networking, ssl and compression.
