best offline backup

For really good backups or machine copies,
i shut the machine down, boot it from CD (knoppix or "rescue system").
Then, I mount the HD to /mnt or whatever and perform the backup.

NFS squashes root privileges. Whether your FTP server does too, I dont know.
Maybe you are victim of iptables (the firewall).

Please give more hints like the commands you try and the errors/problems you get.

i dont realy want to go through all that. im Not using nfs...
im simply bringup wsftp, from a winders box
when i ftp in, from a client, as root, i get a 530 error:

Login incorrect
!Login afilure , so quiting

i can log ftp as me.......
there is a way that redhat is able to block root, both as telnet, and ftp
what i need to know, is how i can disable this ????
