I can boot from the CD. Andreas, is your "bootable CD" suitable to do
that? Thanks.

You mean by "crash" and unusable system?
Then mondo is your friend: creates a bootable CD from your system, which can be any size.

bootcd is quite limited in size: you have just 650MB, there is no compression and only 1 CD.

Mondo compresses and allows multiple CD's: e.g 1.4GB on just 2 CD's.

Moreover, you can create the backup on a running system.


My initial question was for installing on another pc .. rather than download all the deb's all over again, I wanted to take them and create my own install cdrom(s) .. I stumbled upon a package called debian-cd, which seems to fit my need.
