A little introduction first. I'm very
new to all this and have a tendency to jump into things without looking very hard - I find I learn from mistakes more quickly this way - and with this in mind I began to look into ways of creating windows-style restore points.
I came across a thread here -> http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=35087
which basically puts everything on the hdd into a big tar file which can then be used to overwrite changes made afterwards - in a sense it creates a restore point.
Anyway, my question is this - is it really this simple or am I being totally naive?
