You mean disk-to-disk images? use dd.

Copying partitions (assuming a partion exists of the same size)
dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/dev/hdb1 bs=32768

copying a whole disk, partition table, boot record, and all (assuming 
identical sized drives)

dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb bs=32768

the bs parameter sets the block size.. the default size is too small and 
makes DD absurdly slow.
