SCO UNIXware 7.1.4 system backups

Hi,

I wonder if someone can help me, I want to backup my sco unix system, I dont have an external/internal tape drive. How can I make a system backup?
I do have a CD-RW on the server. I am new to sco unix.

Please can anyone advise on what methods I can use, I have looked a cpio.

I tried the following to test:

find /home/test -print |cpio -ocvd > /home/test/test1.cpio

Thanks,

You should have two programs installed; mkisofs and cdrecord. Read the man pages for both of these, and for general background information on backing up any SCO system, read the following Technical Article.
