I am trying to work out how to backup files directly to DVD - i.e.
without creating a temporary file first. However a I first want to
compress them. Was thinking something like
tar cv * | gzip | growisofs -Z /dev/hdc
However cant quite work out how to do it.
The other issue is that I would like to be able to restore individual
files from the DVD without unpacking the whole thing ,something like
gzip /media/cdrom | tar xv *files*
Any help pointers would be great.
