If you want to make a compressed image you can burn to a DVD you could use

dd if=/dev/hda of=-|gzip -c  > /[somepath]/hda.image.gz

and use your favourite DVD-burner application to make a DVD with the
compressed image on. This of course requires that the file will fit on
the DVD (you could experiment with gzip -9, or bzip2 to get better

If the size of the ( gziped ) image does not fit one DVD, we we use
split command to split it...
