Thanks everyone for your help. Carlo, I used your way to create the  
image, does the image contain my both partitions? My partition  
structure is as follows:

/dev/hda1 => /    10GB
/dev/gda2 => /home   70GB

I created ISO folder at /home/iso, and the resulting images reside  
there. There are still about 2 hours until completion, my question is  
does the image file contain my entire system (two partitions), or  
just one? And how can I restore the image in a different harddrive?

Thanks again
