Safari > File > Export bookmarks. Save to any folder you wish then back up to CD.
Backing up your whole user Library folder will save them all too ie. Safari > Bookmarks plist. plus all your mail etc. Always a good idea. :-)

You should be backing up your home folder. That is where every thing user specific is. Settings and such.
