No, the target platform is not local machine, but x86-device that could be 
reached only via network. I have not direct access to harddisk, but know it's 
geometry, so building hdd-image on regular file is most suitable and fast 
way. Then all I have to do is to load target via etherboot, mount local 
machine via NFS and do dd if=image_file of=/dev/hda.
