I do all my backups using dar, which is a simple, but powerfull command line
program, which supports compression, encryption, file splitting, etc. It
doesn't suport dvd burning, but I used growisofs to burn the file(s) dumped
with dar (although the burn always exited part-way through...).
If you like GUI apps, you could always use Kdar as a front end to dar, and
burn the pieces with K3B, or something.

Well that's why I need to ask questions here so often!
