You didn't include it in your reply, but in that email I also wrote:

"That way, if it comes time for a backup, all you do is tar and zip that one 
/etc/config directory, and move it somewhere safe. "

"Somewhere safe" being a CDROM/Backup Tape/remote server/remote location.

Do you think you'd really keep a backup on the same machine? Wouldn't that defeat the 
entire point of backing something up?
