I was recently pointed to a program called teledisk. It's dos-based and
is capable of imaging basically anything a pc drive can physically read.
I was able to use teledisk to make boot disks for my DECmate II from
images stored at sunsite.

If you're a windows user, and are imaging only dos disks, you might want
to try a program called winimage. I've used this one quite extensively.
It will image, format and copy some of the 'newer' formats such as MSes
DMF disks.

I think that winimage will do self-extracting... i've never used it
