Get a Linux LiveCD like knoppix. It includes QtParted or QParted to manipulate partitions and partimage which you can use to make images of partitions.

http://knoppix.net

A free utility that is also very good is DriveImage XML:

You could also get a UBCD and on it you'll find g4u (ghost 4 Unix) which can ghost  windows partitions too.

Any recent version of Norton Ghost is technically Power Quest Drive Image with a modified interface.
