[CentOS] [Slightly OT] Data Preservation

HI All,

So I have 5 1U servers (running Windows) that have Ultra 320 SCSI  
Drives in them.

The owner of these boxes wants the drives captured in their current  
states to .iso or .cdr or something where if the need arises the data  
can be viewed, used again, etc.

So what is the best approach? Boot from a Live CD, hook up a USB  
external HD and do what? Can I create a .iso or .cdr (or some other  
portable format) and have it created on the external USB?

Thoughts on this process would be appreciated.
