Do you happen to know just what has to be backed up to be able to restore Windows fron 
backup and even have it boot?  Every time I've tried it with the current crop of
Windowses just copying all the files (using Linux tar) and running lilo hasn't sufficed.  
There seems to be some essential information outside the file system, as far as I can see.

I mamaged to do this long ago with Windows 98 SE, but as far as I know that time the boot 
information had not been damaged between restores, so if there was any extra covert data, 
it was still there..
