Make sure that you compress (gzip or bzip2) before burning to your
selected medium.  As I don't know what's on the partition, you *may* be
able to compress enough that it will fit on a CD (~700MB) and certainly
a DVD (if you have a DVD burner).  Make sure you purge any
unwanted/unneeded files before backing up.

APL is a high level anguish.
