Cool I need a reliable, simple backup solution


I'm looking for a reliable, simple backup solution for my RH 8.0 boxes. Something where I can boot off a bootable floppy and execute a restore if needed.

Any thoughts?

I use this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mkcdrec/

It allows you to create a bootable CD and archives all the data that you request on additional cds. I have booted off of the cd that it creates and it works, but I have yet to try to restore from the cds it creates. You probably can't boot from a floppy since the kernel images are > than a single floppy.
