I am a long time FreeBSD user and have been using dump/restore for many
years for disk to disk backups.

Now I am getting more and more into FC4 and CentOS, but am I stuck on only
using tar/star for backups?

Tar in its various forms are fine for some items, like home directories, but
dump and restore in FreeBSD also gave me the possibility of easily doing a
bare metal restore.

What are my options for command line only backups? What is everyone else

I do know about Bacula and Amanda... I don't know, maybe I have been using
FreeBSD for too long.
