I am looking at Mondo <http://www.mondorescue.net/>, etc. Kindly give suggestions.I've never used Mondo. I tried once only to find that the mondo kernelcouldn't boot my machine. I figure that if I found a machine it wouldn't boot that easily, then my luck would be that the bare-metal I ended up with after a disaster wouldn't boot either.
I do use mondo regularly.... granted not with Debian machines. I have a couple of standard images at work that I simply restore whenever I need another desktop or firewall machine. I really like it. It's easy to test that it's working correctly before you need it too. The current developer has put in a lot of effort on it in the last while, and is steadily making improvements.
I would point out your files are kept in cpio archives, so worst case you can still always get your data back.
