System Backup?

I am planning to re-install my Knoppix/Debian system.  (I neglected to make a 
boot disk the first time...)

My problem is this:  What is a good method of "backing up" my system so that I 
can restore it to the same condition?

My solution was to copy the 
files:  /etc/fstab,/etc/lilo.conf,/etc/apt/sources.list to my home directory.
Also, I would direct a "dpkg -l" to my home directory.

Does anyone have any better ideas?

Thanks, Bob
