Hi Matt
A special version of say, clonezilla live would probably suffice. In 
its native state clonezilla live is geeky enough to put the 
frighteners onto all but the dedicated. I know because the small local 
club I run (Computing Libre) of several people were interested in this 
and I used it as a working activity. One had already used it to boot 
up but got scared  soon after. All were bowled over by its speed and 
usefulness, and now they have seen it in action they seem more confident.

I understand that fsarchiver is an app worth looking at too.
