Back up the entire partitions or just your system files? Linux does include back-up software (at least the RedHat distribution does). Otherwise, you can use programs such as PowerQuest DriveImage (www.powerquest.com) to back up your entire partitions to other drives or to CDs/other external media. It works pretty good and supports both Windows as well as Linux partitions.
This is just a quick question, is there any way to backing up linux a free and faster way?
The free Knoppix CD-bootable Linux comes with two backup programs: Partition Image and MondoRescue. I have used the first one multiple times with good results; it was quick and worked well. You can get more information on using it along with download links -- see my sig.
What is the backup utilities that comes with RedHat callled???? By using a program like drive image or something, that backs up the hard drive to another drive, to do this you need an other drive in your system. In my case I only have one drive in my system. I want to do a backup of the entire system over the network and put it to a windows server. Becuase I am new to linux, I dont know really what to backup, so I guess in my case it would be better to back up the entire system???

You can do it as I just described -- Partition Image can back up over a network or to a series of CD-Rs, if you have a burner. If you have multiple partitions on your single drive (you should), you can back up one part to the other and save it out later.
