I tried using Partition Logic it allows copying to another hard drive but
not to a CD, so I don't think we will be able to use it at the moment.  It
made a good copy but is not able to resize partitions you must create
another partition to use up the rest of the drive.  I also don't think it
could copy a larger disk to a smaller disk.  It looks cool if you have vesa
2.0 video, otherwise you get a fully functional text mode.  Partition Logic
is at 0.55 and is part of the Visopsys http://visopsys.org/osdev/index.html
operating system it looks like additional functionality is planned including
the ability to resize filesystems.  I guess I'll have to keep an eye on the
project.
