Only reason why I'm looking for a backup program is this: I want to be able to create an image that I know is working 100%, no doubt I'm going to trash my SL install some time in the future. So what I'm looking for is a utility that I can fall-back on, then simply restore image/working system & I'm back up & running. Also, knowing there's a safety-net, enables you to be more adventurous
Say I want to 'glsa-check -f all' (which I wouldn't do without some kind of backup), & my SL install goes pear-shaped. I know I've got a working image to restore.
