SQL Dump... backup?

SQL Dump... backup?
** Disclaimer: From a MySQL novice.

We want to use MySQLMan as a manual backup utility, using SQL Dump.
Comments? Is this a reasonable solution [we have 50 tables]?

Is there a "doc" available explaining these oprions:
CREATE TABLE statements and INSERT statements ?

Shoud I be concerned with the above options, or could we simply do a "dump to screen" and save the file?

Should we need to Restore from the above dump file, how would we do that?
