The built-in backup tool should do fine. It makes an image based backup, and to restore it you just have to go to the recovery options when you boot from the OS installation DVD.

One thing that makes sense is to have at least a 2nd DC in your domain, as that server will have a replica of your Active Directory information.

It's worth noting you cannot recover to tape with Windows Server Backup so plan how you will store the full backup in advance.
