You need to substitute "sda5" for "sda2", no?

Hi xor
You do not make it clear what it is you are trying to accomplish.
If you are trying to make  sda5  a duplicate of  sda1 , then remove the  /image.iso  from the command.
If you are trying to make an ISO file for burning CDs, calling it  .iso  won't make that happen.
Maybe you want to Google  mkisofs  for creating an  ISO ?  It's provided by  cdrtools.tcz.
