create backup to /opt/BACKUP
	tar zcvf /opt/BACKUP/var.tgz /var
	tar zcvf /opt/BACKUP/usr.tgz /usr

and you're semi done :-)

problem with cd method is it might not fit onto
one cdrom 

if you want a bootable cdrom .. make sure you have
a bootable cdrom image ( or just use one off the shelf )
especially since you want to copy all of your stuff onto
another hard disk vs a bootable/standalone cdrom

i'm assuming that all the stuff you want will not
fit onto one cdrom

get that new disk to be running on standalone
or just mount it into the master box

	install all them files

	run grub or lilo

	done .. reboot and magic... dont forget
	to change oyur host name and ip#
