If "Cannot afford to re-image" means that either have not time or money to pay anyone to make it for you. just take a look and let it for the weekend "http://clonezilla.org/" and also combine it with a http://www.tightvnc.com/ these days even iphones have something similar. This way, the Computer work and you rest, kind of.?

If "Cannot afford to re-image" means that you cannot afford downtime, then I recommend spending $800 for Acronis Disk Image and buy a duplicate drive. Even works with BSDs, and I recall that support was good, too.
This will mean a few hours of downtime on Sunday morning, however.

If?"Cannot afford to re-image" means that you've no cannot afford ~$50 for an used IDE drive, then you'll have to explain what resources you do have.

I'm not familiar with the other software you mention, but a simple OpenVPN setup is easier than many backup solutions.
I'd heard of some front-ends to Amazon S3, such as JungleDisk, which are cheap and easy.
Otherwise, I can recommend some Linux backup experts.
