Which reminds me, I forgot to mention the other tool I use for backups
(you can see how frequently): Mondo. It creates a bootable CD containing
all your data. The CD can be run in "Nuke" mode which blows away
anything on the disk and installs from the CD. You could certainly use
that for deploying machines. It supports VFAT, but can only backup NTFS
as an entire partition ala dd.
