Mondo [1] (with mindi) seems quite interesting to backup and restore a
whole system (not just some folders), but it seems to have a few bugs.
Gui is ncurse but quite user-friendly, and it works well to do backups
on Cd's. I also tried backup on nfs file system and Dvd, but neither
worked. Maybe it's fixed in the new version.

The site doesn't work very often but the package is in the repositories.
sudo apt-get install mondo mondo-doc
