tar command with with zip (Author: kevin)

Here's a quick way to backup a large directory structure in unix. This will zip the files and compress, allowing them to be burned to a CD with little headache.

tar cvfz usr.tar usr/*

This command (when executed from the root directory) will stuff the entire /usr/ directory into a smaller package for copying between systems, etc.
