Thank god, dd works on Mac OS X, too. Just login as root unmount the eventually automounted disc and use dd as usual.

[caco@MacBook-Air ~]# sudo -s
[root@MacBook-Air ~]# mount
/dev/disk1 on / (hfs, local, journaled)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local, nobrowse)
map -hosts on /net (autofs, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse)
map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted, nobrowse)
/dev/disk2s0 on /Volumes/XP_PRO_SP3 (cd9660, local, nodev, nosuid, read-only, noowners)
[root@MacBook-Air ~]# umount /dev/disk2s0
[root@MacBook-Air ~]# dd if=/dev/disk2s0 of=Documents/MY_IMAGE.iso
