I am interested in hearing what you use for backing up a linux laptop

I would want to backup to either a DVD or a external harddrive through usb.
I use "rsync -Pavy --delete-after" for my /home partition, plus a couple
extra things like /etc and some parts of /var. I usually also grab a
list of installed packages.
There are many cool ways to keep version-controlled home directories,
but I admit to not using them; the only older versions of things that
usually interest me are already in version control systems like Fedora
Docs or Extras CVS or my home SVN system.
