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