[NBLUG/talk] talk idea (backing up your system)

I haven't seen anyone mention mondo-archive yet.

I've been toying with it on and off, and it works on my debian box, it burns 
directly to CD or DVD, AND it has the ability to create bare metal 

But it has a unique file format, and I can't quite get my head around not 
being able to 'see' what's in there (black-box aversion mentality).

Any comments?
