Re: Backing up installed packages.

You should also back up /etc since this often contains any modifications you 
may have made during the installation process.

  I do:

    Every system file (under /; don't forget, for example, /boot/grub/menu.lst)
    modified is stored under RCS.

    A nightly cron job e-mails me about files still checked out.

    A weekly cron job gathers the RCS directories and stores them on a back-up
