You may want to take a look at:

(they seem to be refering to Ghost)

or look at:

where they can help you with dd (this article seems a little outdated, but very useful whatsoever)

they seem very useful for you, since, for what i see, LILO doesnt have a secure transiction assured anywhere (maybe because you have it in /mbr?)

There might be a couple of other ways of doing this.

1) rsync (http://rsync.samba.org) synconizes the files on one disk to another, either on the same machine or across the network. This won't create an image, but it will create an exact duplicate of your disk on another. BTW, the disks don't need to be identical.

2) mkfs - use mkfs to create an .iso, mount the .iso and burn it to a CD or copy it to another machine.

Both should work.
