:It could be nice having the BSD Installer offer some back-up
:options, like saving a few files, a partition, or all disk, to what-
:ever media is available. Some other raw disk, a file, network
:share, cd/dvd, email ;)
:That way, people (me included) would have no excuse 
:not to take the safe route.
:Just an idea.

    That could turn into a can of worms.  There is really no 'best' way
    to back-up a drive that does not entail the risk of accidently 
    destroying something (like mis-specifying the target drive).  This
    risk would be very close to being the same risk you take when trying
    to install an OS onto a disk that has already been partitioned so
    I don't think it would be that beneficial.
