I used clonezilla live (Clonezilla). Click on the "Live CD/USB/PXE" link on the left and it gives you full instructions on how to create a live USB stick and also a guide on cloning a disk.
I boot from the USB stick, run clonezilla in 800 * 600 resolution, and use pretty much default options for the rest of the process. The guide is really good and describes how you can make an image of your entire 10v hard drive and store it on a USB external drive - this is what I did.
I have used it to make full disk backups as I've been installing OS X. e.g. I have a disk image of the original XP install, an image of my first successful SL install, an image of my 10.6.2 SL etc.
Now if I ever need to I can run clonezilla again and restore my disk from one of the images.
