OK, I could use a little advise...

I have been using Linux quite regularly for about 8 months now. And I have several "homemade" linux boxes at home, including a Gentoo box that took me quite awhile to get exactly the way I wanted.

Now I am ready to back up! I don't own any tape drives or anything for home use. And I pretty much just have one CD-RW drive between the lot for now.

So what are my backup options? I am looking for something that could do a complete system restore in case of a hard drive failure. I suppose there could even be a way to store my system data on a remote system and restore it via my LAN network as well.

Anyways, any help or ideas anyone has would be appreciated.
