Default backup fdisk partitions

Hi again,
I would like to backup my drive with Vista in it, because I want to get rid of it and use my new thinkpad for openbsd only. But I still want to backup what came with it.
Since all my attempts using ThinkVintage failed, I'm thinking of copying the whole disk, or at least the three partitions that came with the laptop.
They are three HPFS/QNX/AUX partitions.
How can I backup everything so that if I wanted to I could copy back all of it into the disk and have it as "new"?
Is dd an option?
What's the best way to do this, and using less space space?
