    Which program to use?


    Which program should I use to do the follwoing in ubuntu edgy eft: Save all my settings (not the personal stuff like usernames and documents, like stuff that I changed in a control panel, and stuff I edited in the Terminal) and collection of my programs that I had installed.

    Is there a program or set of scripts that could do this?

    (I basically want an equivilent of this http://livecd.berlios.de/, except for ubuntu.)

    tar -cf etc.tar /etc

    You would also want to do the same for the ".files" in your home folder. For example your settings for Gaim would be in /home/<yourname>/.gaim
