Backup und Original not identical?

I did a "Backup - all files" from my internal "Macintosh HD" to an external firewire drive. When I open both in finder after copying, they look not the same!
On the backup drive there are folders like "dev" and "network", which are not on the original. And the folder have no icons as they have on "Macintosh HD".

Why ist the backup not an identical copy?

I know, there are differences in "Finder Aliases" and "Unix Symlinks" on Mac OS X (An alias stores the unique file id, a symlink stores the path of a file). Finder Aliases can only be created with finder, not with normal applications. Has it something to do with that?.
