Ideas for making easy backups of system to CD-RW
Just put a CD-RW drive in my UNIX station and would like to use it to make easy backups of the system with a shell script...any ideas?

With a shell script you may easily create a tarball archive and gzip it, but I can't tell the same for the burning process..
Try doing a search on Linux related sites & Freshmeat and the likes...

Write a script that will dump your system and then cp it to a command line burning software. such as CDRDao. Ill try to work something out for you email me exactly what you want.

Are you running a regular distro of Unix or are you running Linux? I know that Ghost 2002 will do Linux systems ( I just installed it on a new box I built for my sister with 2000 Pro on it and saw where it mentioned it ).
