I'm trying to figure out a real backup solution for a small home server. Until now I've simply connected to it via ftp from within the network, downloaded everything, and burned a cd. Takes a little while.

I also read something about making an iso of everything using mkisofs, then I could download it to my workstation and burn it right to a cd - would that be a good solution? Also, does that binary come standard in most distros, because I don't have it...? I have a Trustix Linux 2 distrobution (http://www.trustix.net/
