Default Backing Up Linux Mandriva 2006 Free Edition

I was just wondering if anyone knows a good way (other than buying a external hard drive) to backup the entire partition with the OS on it. Reinstalling and updating is getting old --takes too much time. I would prefer a free version of software that will do backups to cdrom. If not I may just have to bite the bullet and get an external.

You can have a look at SystemImager, however it does not back up to CD or DVD:
