FC3 and AMD 64 working perfect

Now that I have all of my hardware and software humming along nicely...is there a "system restore point" or a "system backup" utility that I can use to save everything in the event I "play" to aggressively and break something....so that I can restore these configurations?
Also, does anyone know of a Linux based benchmark program like "Sandra 2004" so that I can see if this 64 bit OS has any perfomance advantage over WinXP 64?

Thanks,
Robyn

Do a backup. Especcially of your /etc/ and /home/ partition.

I would like to do a "backup", but I have searched the Fedora Help files...and "backup" is not found. Is there some command line instruction for backing up, which I am not aware of?

I will be a bit off topic - sorry - just a short question:

could not find tips around the forum on installing Radeon 9800 on amd 64 + FC3 and it doesn't work for me although the driver seems to install...

Don't know what to do :-(

thnx in advance,

tt

I too had trouble with with the 9800 Pro operating fully until the newest release. Read all of the instructions from ATI regarding insatlling the drivers. and run the configuration utility...........if you don't run the utility, it won't set up right.
