  I use a Linux Rescue CD with support for my SCSI adapter (any Adaptec
& most NCR/Symbios/LSI cards will be built in without modification) and
do a straight tar or dd-to-diskfile-then-tar backup. I've done a couple
of bare-metal restores of Windows 95 from dd images and it worked
beautifully, but you need lots of room on a spare filesystem.

  I guess Ghost (which I've seen for as little as $50 lately) is
probably the best Win/DOS based option. Again, hardware requirements are
the rub.
