I have not used G4L, but you can probably accomplish the same using dd and
to create an image:
dd if=/dev/hda bs=1024 | bzip2 > /some/path/backup.bz2
to restore an image:
bzip2 -cd /some/path/backup.bz2 | dd of=/dev/hda bs=1024
to clone one hd to the other directly:
dd if=/dev/hda bs=1024k | dd of=/dev/sda bs=1024k
dd can also be used with netcat to store or retrieve the images.
