    Thanks, but it didnt really help, i didnt see any information concern to my problem there.

    Any reason not to use dd?
    I didnt understand what is exactly. it's not an imaging program, is it?

    Anyway i thought to unmount the partitions before running the program, but than i will have no place to save the image file to.

    save Partimage in Floppy or Harddisk, boot up from any LiveCD and create an image of any partition.
    PartImage is available in System Rescue CD and Austrumi. i use Austrumi coz its a LiveCD distro, just 50MB. create image of any partition and save that anywhere.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
