I think so, at least you do the way I use it because you boot the 
machine off the Clonezilla CD, then mount the device/partition you're 
backing up to and select the device/partition being backed up.

But Clonezilla also has a whole network mode of operation involving a 
Clonezilla server, so I can't rule it out ... maybe someone else can?
