Nope, it only does http://freshmeat.net/projects/partimage/

Partition Image is a Linux/UNIX uility similar to Symantec's Ghost. It
can save and restore a (compressed) image file of partitions in the
ext2fs, ReiserFS, FAT16/32 ,or NTFS file systems. The image file can
optionally be split into multiple files so they can be copied on
multiple discs.

Would this be on an application basis? Checkpoint restart mods are out
there for Linux but I don't have any URL's.
