backup deselections?

I want to back up my choices in deselect on a floppy, so I can later do a
clean install of the whole system, and install all the same packages without
having to go through the selection process again.

What's the right way to do this?

Do I just need the `status' file?  It contains my selections, but also
information about what is currently installed.  Will things get messed up if I
use this file in a future installation, when those packages are not in fact
installed yet?
