You can use Clonezilla. Clonezilla is the Free and Open Source Software for Disk Imaging and Cloning. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition).1

For more information or to download Clonezilla See here.

dd if=/dev/[Hard Disk] of=/dev/[usb drive]

I have always used this, but it will create copy image of your system.
