I've recently been doing this with norton Ghost (as it's incredibly fast, 
believe it or not - it'll also do ext2 filesystems.. anyone tried that, by 
the way?)

I recall doing this awhile back, with the only gotcha of "don't try to 
clone the partition, clone the drive".  IIRC, when I tried to clone the 
partition, I had to initialize the MBR seperately...  But it's been 
awhile, so don't quote me there.  



The only thing worse than failure is the fear of trying something new
