backup utility for Red hat Linux

Hello geeks,

I am looking for backup utility which will back up all important config files in linux.(For example a utility called "explorer" is used in solaris which will backup most of the important config files,which is very useful while making a DR procedure)

Is there anything available????Please advice.

with regards,
