[Samba] Full Win Backup

Is there a way to mount a windows share (win98, win2k) and copy all files and 
attributes (tar) to a unix backup store to be used as full recovery backup ?

My suggested scenario for backup is:
- copy a full system partition of windows to a tar file. 

My suggested scenario for restore is:
- Make a inital installation of windows
- mount the system drive to unix using smb
- copy the whole backup back.

Is such a scenario possible ?
Are the other possiblites for such a full system backup, not triggered by the 
windows box ?
