Or, if you don't want to swap disks around, you can boot
the source and destination with knoppix CD's, set a root
password and start the ssh server on one and pipe through
ssh from the other:

dd if=/dev/sda |ssh ip_address dd of=/dev/sda
You can probably run several of those at once without
slowing down too much.
