Check out the MAN page for tar, or look into some backup utilities, like Backula, or Arkeia.

You can use the dd commands or partimage to back up your system.

Do a search of LQ for the dd thread, there is a lot more in that thread.

Here my 2 cents.

lets say that my removable hd is on /media/bkupdrv

Code:
rsync -a / /media/bkupdrv:/
this will backup your entire system onto the your ext hdd. here is a good link with other links. http://www.sanitarium.net/golug/rsync_backups.html
