No more so than any other installation. Probably even somewhat less 
with *nix, due to (free / no licensing hassle) cross-system 
application consistency. (tar, gzip, dump, rsync, amanda, insert your 
favourite <thunk> here)

What has active directory to do with anything?

Let alone in the face of (open) ldap, 'dynamic' dns, pam, samba, and 
the like. [Use an OS' native backup to backup the OS partition to a 
file residing on another partition, then use your favourite backup 
scheme to copy that file into the repository.]
