Do you want to do this while the system is running? Or can the system be taken down while the disk is cloned? Then while the system is not connected, you would login and run sys-unconfig to reconfigure the cloned system with a new name.

Easy way; take your Linux HDD and slave it on your xp/win 7 machine, install WinImage, create an iso of your linux drive with WinImage, burn the ISO or create an new vmdk and transeffer it to another drive and just boot the new drive.

Hard way:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb where "sda" is your linux partition and "sdb" is another drive you partitioned with ext3/4
I use Clonezilla quite often and it works most of time for me.
