I'm thinking of backing up my FreeBSD 6.2 webmail server by installing

good idea. man rsync :)

I was thinking about just dump, as I'm more familiar with it, but
I'll check out rsync if you think it's better for this purpose.

Has anyone else done this?  I haven't found any mention via Google,

i'm doing this with my notebook.

Great.  What kind of drive?  And have you actually
had to do a restore?
