Mondo Rescue (http://www.mondorescue.org/) will create a image of your hard disk including all partitions (even NTFS for us dual-booters). It will write that image out to an attached network drive, a CD-R(W) or tape and the CD-R's are made bootable with the currently-running kernel. (Hmm, I wonder if that includes USB drives...)
I'm not sure how well it works on Knoppix (don't have a machine with two CD drives and 'toram' locked up on me). But this would be great for DamnSmall since 'toram' uses a lot less RAM...
One drawback is that NTFS partitions are bit-by-bit copies which, of course, leaves the image pretty large. The current unstable version (1.74) uses a hacked version of PartImage to leave out "empty" sectors and reduce the size of NTFS partition images.
