Two caveats and two other resources:
1) The Linuxcare image pretty much fills up the credit-card CDR, and don't
forget that it's compressed. You'll need to take something out to shoehorn
anything else in. I found it much more practical to get 3-inch CDR's from
the same people; these hold 150MB instead of a mere 50MB.
2) Don't be fooled by the BBC's shape -- it is NOT rugged enough to carry
in a wallet. Also the plastic envelopes that come with them have ripped
the silvering right off some of mine. The paper label is not optional. :-(
To roll your own you might also want to look into these:
- Kent Robotti's RIP (Recovery Is Possible), at
ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/people/kent-robotti/looplinux/rip - it supports
reiserfs, which may be a big plus if you have to recover a SuSE system;
- Timo's Rescue CD, at http://rescuecd.sourceforge.net - a new project, at
this point it's as much documentation as it is code.
Hope that helps!
