    Total System Backup


    Hey all,

    Being both overly curious and new to Linux, I tend to break my systems fairly easily, and often find that just starting all over (complete reinstall) is the fastest way to get things back up and running.

    However, what I would rather do, once I get my system to a stable point, is to create a backup of everything, and be able to restore to this point.

    Does anybody know of a good solution for this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Dave
