[SATLUG] Live backup / hot imaging software for Linux?

Can anyone recommend a good backup software that can clone an entire 
drive into an image while said drive is running?  Something like 
DriveImageXML, but for Linux.  I've tried just copying 
partition-to-partition (/dev/hda to /dev/hdb, for example) and using dd, 
with somewhat mixed and unpredictable results on the copy.  What is the 
best way to get a hot image of a disk in Linux?
