Taking backup of running ubuntu desktop


Hi,
I have a habit of developing device drivers for some reason.I do use a virtualization environment using VirtualBox,Qemu.
Many a times I have to format my laptop then in such situations installing again the previous programs and making same changes to the configurations is very painful.
Is there some way I can make some sort of backup which I just need to install on my existing system and get all previous things immediately installed without going to install and setting of a lot of other applications and settings.

Thanks for the link.
I want to have some sort of Live CD image of all running things.tar is not what I am looking for.
The said machine also has some LVM partitions and guest OSeS are running in it.
