If you will be working with VMWare, they have a free converter called
'P2V' (physical to virtual?):
Other than that, you can look into simple tools like 'DD'
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_(Unix) to perform data dumps between
partitions, disks, or even over the network using 'NC'
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netcat to perform forensics.
Also, look at Penguin Sleuth & Autopsy http://www.linux-forensics.com/,
they even have a VMWare Virtual Appliance
