Especially for directly connected volumes, the built-in Time Machine service is very good. You can't boot off it, but if you have a failure, you can boot off the CD, it will see the volume, and rebuild the system from the backup automatically.
I've had to do a recovery this way (from a failed HD), and it was entirely painless.
Don't have a good book reference; when I made the same transition, I just trusted in Google. :>
