Imaging a Unix Hard Drive

I have a Unix HD that I am trying to image to another HD.  I am trying to use a program called G4U.  I have looked at DD but the commands are over my head.  Can I get some support to walk me through cloning this HD.   Please and thank you.

Don't know about G4U.  But dd is not so hard. If the source and destination disks are the same size (or dest is bigger than source)
you could just try

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb

substituting sda and sdb with the names of the device files for your source and destination hard drives.

Thanks, but it looks like g4u did the image successfully.  It is a pretty cool tool.  It is easy and free.  Check it out http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/#filesystems.  This ticket can be closed.  Thanks again for the prompt response.
