how can i create a registry restore point (a copy of the SAM, SYSTEM,SOFTWARE, SECURITY, DEFAULT files in system32\config) in a server OS.
Similar to the copies WinXP System restore makes in the SystemVolumeInformation folder?

You could use something like ERUNT

You could write your own script to do the following :

Copy the necessary files somewhere.. this Wiki article gives good examples of what is backed up.

Finally you can try this on a test machine before putting it live but people have had success adding the actual system restore to their win 2k3 machines.  I have not tried or tested this so this is a use at your own risk.

Did you consider using System State Backup for that? It's much more better than using manual copy of those files.

Do it regularly for each of your mission-critical servers and you would be safe
