If you want the whole filesystem, you can copy the entire partition with
dd.  You wouldn't need reiserfs support, since you wouldn't really be
interacting with the filesystem, just the partition.

After restoring the partition to a target machine, it could be resized
with parted.

In either case, check out Timo's Rescue CD set
(http://rescuecd.sourceforge.net/) as well as the Gentoo Live CD.  I
think both will have all the tools you're looking for.
