maybe using Clonezilla: http://clonezilla.org/ (it does not support
UFS, but il will create a dd copy of your hdd/partition). But you have
a user interface, so maybe it is easier to work with.

If not, you can boot a livecd and you can use standard tools, like:
dd, dump/restore, tar, ..

In handbook you will find some useful start tips.
