O/S & program files?  - Use ufsdump. It handles all special file types, it's supported by Sun and it has some nice features like incremental backups and remote tape drives.

Using tar or cpio would mean writing complex scripts;  Using a "high level" tool like Veritas Netbackup means that in the event of a disaster you need to rebuild the OS, reinstall Veritas and _then_ start restoring data.
