According to the clonezilla website, dd is one of the supported methods:  "Based on Partclone (default), Partimage (optional), ntfsclone (optional), or dd to image or clone a partition. However, Clonezilla, containing some other programs, can save and restore not only partitions, but also a whole disk. "

I have yet to have a dd clone go awry; not that it can't happen, but in years of doing this sort of thing, on multiple different Unix-type OS's (and real AT&T Unix) I have yet to have issues there.

But that reminds me that I need to get a newer clonezilla live anyway....
