Print directory list command


Is there a command to write the entire directory structure to file. I'm in the process of backing up my entire HDD to spare drives, and cds for a Gentoo/WinXP build. I just guessed that it's going to be much easier to save the list in linux than windoze.
Sorry for the somewhat question, oh, and i'm using Knoppix atm because i'm to lazy to repartition.

Alex

interesting problem, to do the entire file structure, there's ls -aR / > file

Unfortunatly ls -adR / > file stops the recursive behaviour.

Code:
ls -R / >listing.txt
This would do the job.

Correction:
Didn't notice the need to only print directory structure.
This problem might call for a bash script, combining more commands.
