Perhaps I ought to mention that both G4L and partimage consider NTFS imaging to be beta. It is a good idea to defrag the NTFS drive prior to imaging if possible. Personally I consider Partimage to be the more 'mature' linux solution.

Partimage might already be on your DSL CD. If not, it is on the UBCD when you boot it into the linux (F7) part. On knoppix it is also included.

You can try with " CAPTAIN NEMO"

try using dd from the command line
if hda1 is your windows partition,

dd if=/dev/hda1 of=myfile.img

dd will then make a file of equal size as the entire partition.
to restore...

dd if=myfile.img of=/dev/hda1

dd can take a long time to run it doesnt output any feedback while working but you can watch as the file gets bigger
