    would this be ok to make a Backup from the system?

    Code:
    cd /
    tar -czplf backup.tar.gz --atime-preserve *
    mkisofs -o backup.iso backup.tar.gz
    Or are messages like this:

    Code:
    tar: Socket var/lib/named/dev/log ignoriert
    tar: Socket var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock ignoriert
    tar: Socket var/run/courier/authdaemon/socket ignoriert
    tar: Socket var/spool/postfix/private/rewrite ignoriert
    tar: Socket var/spool/postfix/private/bounce ignoriert

    These are just sockets, no regular files. That's normal, don't worry about it.
    BTW, did you have a look at the "Backup" tutorials on HowtoForge? http://www.howtoforge.com/taxonomy_menu/1/34
    Might be interesting for you. :)
