Backup entire system to DVD.
Anyone know a good way to do this, aside of something like mondo?

Basically, I want to write to the DVD, much like tar would write to a tape.

Backup to tape example:


sudo nice tar -jcvpf /dev/st0 / --exclude=/some-random-backup-dir --exclude=/proc --exclude=/lost+found --exclude=/sys --exclude=/mnt --exclude=/media --exclude=/tmp

I guess you could tar,dd, cat or such to a udf disk.
