my 2 e| (no euro symbol available :)):

I use dump/restore and pipe it through gzip to get compressed archive
files. Dump/restore is on rescue floppies and is made to respect special
file permssions e.g. in root file systems. That means that if you make a
dump and your system incuding your own rescue discs and install CDs bursts
into flames you should still be able to completely restore from fresh boot
