Ok. If I can't find an all-FreeSoftware solution I'll try those.

This looks really good. I'll test PartImage (the tool that comes with 
SysRecordCD that is relevant to my use case). One neat thing about 
SysRecordCD is that you can burn it onto a DVD with up to 4.2GB of 
additional data. So the Ubuntu image itself can be on the DVD.

Thanks for the link.
