How to completely mirror(backup) whole system?

I have 7 wokstations, I would like to use my mandrake server to mirror bosses
workstation(it is RedHat9.0) onto separate hard drive on the server, so if
something happens to her system, I could just take out that hard drive and
replace the crashed one and limit my recovery time to 30 minutes at most. Is
complete backup nightly the right solution? How would I go about it?

Also, I would like to have a backup that works as following:
Server A has drive 1 and drive 2
Server B has drive 3 and drive 4

I would like server A completely mirror drive 3(serverB) onto dirve 2
At the same time Server B would completely mirror drive 1(serverA) onto drive 4
How can it be done?
I also want to just be able to swap drive to make quick recovery.
