    Backup whole Redhat system

    I want to help a friend who has a small network with some version of Redhat running on a main computer as the internet gateway. He knows virtually nothing about linux (I have some knowledge) so before I touch anything, I want to protect myself by backing up everything on the Redhat server.

    I intend to make rescue disks... then login as root and type "tar -cfv backup.tar /" then move this file to another hard disk for storage, also burn it to CDs or DVD.

    Is this the right way to go about it?

    Thanks for any help and advice.
