Subjectbacking up configuration

I want to back up a PC hard disk as an image (not necessarily files,
but configuration, MBR's, etc) [I'm running combinations of linux,
freebsd, os/2, win95, winnt *).

Should I be able to (if I have valid media)

tar -czvf /net/someremote/host.tar.gz /dev/hda?

Would it make sense to write zeros on the whole disk so it compresses
