Create partition images with Partimage

How to create backup copies of your partitions for cloning/copying or just for recovery with Partimage.
This is a guide to create or restore images of your partitions using the great open source tool Partimage. It provides information on how to do this locally or across the network, by setting up a Partimaged Server. I guess this info is non distribution specific, since we will work from a Rescue environment.

The same operations can be performed using the dd utility, but the usage of Partimage is recommended as it does not include the partitionís free space in the image, resulting in images smaller in size and less required time to complete the operation.
