Hi,
Reading this:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=35087
I ran this command from terminal being root


tar cvpzf backup.tgz --exclude=/proc --exclude=/lost+found --exclude=/backup.tgz --exclude=/mnt --exclude=/media --exclude=/sys /


You can do this way, but ideally your file system should be unmounted (boot from
a live CD/DVD).

I, personally, use BackupPC for /home and partimage for the file system (/ and /boot).
