Question System Restore equivelent for Linux?


I was just wondering if there is any sort of program for Linux that is comparable to XP's System Restore. It would be nice to save my system when it is stable so that I can go back to it if it crashes. If there is no such program, would it be hard to make one? I think it would be very popular.
Thanks in advance for any help,
-Avi

linux doesn't use a 'registry' so a system restore wouldn't work like that. Instead, you have to make backups of the files that you change, calling them something like :

fstab(sept6th)

and reverting if you need to.

I doubt there's a program that handles this. But as long as you make backups, system restore should never be necessary.
