I mount the windows (98,ME,NT,2000, XP, ECT!) box with samba.... and go BOOM! 
rsync that baby from localhost:/mnt/win2000 or where ever the smbfs lies...

Watch out for pagefile.sys (i think!)... it's won't copy. (let me know about 
any other's)

Now, can you think of a way to sync the win 2000 OS? (the WHOLE flippin' 
system) so that if it were to go down one could restore the full installation 
(bootstraps, bootloader, ect!!?) by means of the rsync'ed "backup".
please? thank you. ;-)
