I suggest you have a look at Mondo. It is not a disk imaging solution but I
believe it will provide you with a much better and more versatile solution.

What is Mondo?
Mondo is reliable. It backs up your GNU/Linux server or workstation to tape,
CD-R, CD-RW, NFS or hard disk partition. In the event of catastrophic data
loss, you will be able to restore all of your data [or as much as you want],
from bare metal if necessary. Mondo is in use by Lockheed-Martin, Nortel
Networks, Siemens, HP (US and France), IBM, NASA's JPL, dozens of smaller
companies, and tens of thousands of users.

Mondo is comprehensive. Mondo supports LVM, RAID, ext2, ext3, JFS, XFS,
ReiserFS, VFAT, and can support additional filesystems easily: just e-mail
the mailing list with your request. It supports adjustments in disk geometry,
including migration from non-RAID to RAID. Mondo runs on all major Linux
distributions and is getting better all the time. You may even use it to
backup non-Linux partitions, such as NTFS.
