I wish...

...there was a bit of software available which would create an installation CD of *my* Ubuntu desktop, with the software that I have installed and configured the way I want it.

I would be happy in the knowledge that if my hard drive fails I can just put in a new one, slide my backup CD (or DVD) into the tray and go away for half an hour while it installs.

Yes, installing Ubuntu is easy, but it would be nice to have my own personalised install disc with Thunderbird, Akregator, the Nvidia drivers, DVD enabled etc etc etc etc.

I do keep my documents backed up safely, but it would be very nice to be able to back the system disc up just as easily!
