error while trying to save partition

Hi,

I have followed all the instructions in order to create an image of a partition. I'm using a live CD of Ubuntu 10.04 (because the System Rescue CD just won't boot). So I installed partimage with apt-get, then I run it (with sudo)

I select the partition to save, and select the file to save to, then I hit F5 (continue).

Just when it seems it is actually starting to copy the partition, it gives me this very strange error message:

"cannot read bitmap block 0 from image"

and the only available option is "cancel", at which point it quits.

Any idea??

Thanks
m.
