Output rpm cmd listing onto a CD?

I need to do a listing of software on several Redhat Linux boxes. The easiest way I know how is the rpm -qa command. Is there a way to output the data to a file and then download to a CD? Is there a switch I can attach to this command or will I have to do a copy and paste the output? And if this is the case, how do I know that everything that's showing on the screen is the entire output.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

rpm -qa > installedApplications.log
this will create a log file with all the information in it. You can then transfer this to a central location or use the lpr command to print it out.
