well, deja vu is currently the only one that allows you to save to a specific place, like a folder on an external hd instead of to the hd's main folder.

in that case, you'd need an app, deja vu actually, and save it to a folder so that you have the invisible files as well, then create a disk image from that folder and burn that, if it will fit on a dvd, I doubt it unless its a bare bones system and no files or many settings changed, and no apps, and even if you can burn it to a dvd, you cant boot from a dvd.

I use Tri-BACKUP and that does what you want also. It's not free though.
