I went and grabbed my grandfather's old Mac and am transferring it using Carbon Copy Cloner right now. Seems to be working fine. Thanks for the posts.
You could have booted it in target disk mode and tried using a firewire cable to copy it just using disk utility. At work I have a Firewire 800 and ThunderBolt cable just for imaging and backing up Macs. If you do boot in any distro of *nix, using dd should work most of the time.
