The mondo homepage says:
"This is the home page of Mondo, the premier GPL'd disaster-recovery suite for Linux
and Windows."
So it should be possible even for a dummy windows user with some kind of a frontend
to use mondo.

One more thing I would like to add to the issue:
If you use PartImage or anything else that reads the partition itself then the
backup/rescue will most probably fail if the user has bad sectors. Mondo-like
software will only fail on those files which lie on the damaged area.
