I imagine the older Linuxes support MFM controllers.
Perhaps even the current versions do, too. You could simply
'dd' the drive image to another device.

My favorite backup trick recently was getting drive images
from an Amiga 2500 to a PC for use under an emulator.
I mounted the PC's drive under NFS, then used a freeware
program to copy the drive image to the remote file.
