    Short of just dragging folders to the server? There has to be a better way then this.

    carbon copy cloner

    Makes a copy of your harddrive, even the invisible files etc. I know if you try to drag and drop your iTunes library, it'll say it cant be done because certain files cant be copied.

    There is another one, but i'm not sure of its name.

    CCC doesn't support cloning to server shares, he'd need to clone it to a physical disk that isn't the startup disk (e.g. an external FireWire enclosure). ;/

    However, you should be able to use Disk Utility to make an image of your drive as long as it's not busy (e.g. your Startup Disk) to a server.
