If my system backup exceeds the space of the cd-rw I am rewriting to, am I able to continue the backup on a second cd-rw? If so, How do you do this? Everytime I try, it cancels the backup due to lack of space.

Most Third-Party backup packages use disk spanning.

What are you using to do this task?
What software I mean.

Also my best advice for this task is an extrrnal hard drive.

If you are used to using CD and you started using an external drive, you will say "Wow this rocks" :)

Look at CMS Peripherals Automatic Backup systems. They aren't cheap,but to me it is the best way to go.

I wouldn't trust my back-up to a CD-RW anyway. They are not known to be reliable. If you are going to use CDs (as opposed to other mentioned methods) please use CDRs. You will be glad you did............
