First question you have to ask yourself is why?

If you're keen to be able to get your system going again after a crash, it can be done. But literally every last thing you do not in userland will need a new backup if you so much as sneeze. If it's a new system, the backup is useless (for the most part). If it's the same system, this is exactly what disk mirroring with RAID was created for. No reason to reinvent the wheel.

That being said, tar was made for this sorta thing. Just don't go backing up /dev and /proc. You can backup /tmp, but it's pointless.

But, you'd be much better of just creating a post-install shell script to recover from a crash with maybe a /etc tarball.
