Use the simulation flag to test your partimage backup. It's a pretty 
good indicator of whether it'll restore. partimage has worked quite 
well for me. Only thing to remember is to split compressed archives 
below 2GB, since partimage has a bug with handling >2GB compressed 

I've tried Mondo several times over the past few years, but I always had 
trouble restoring.

Actually you can just create a tar.gz archive of your partition, and 
then use Knoppix to setup GRUB/LILO after the restore.
