I would use good old plain and simple CD-R and take a couple of copies now and secure them safekly away.

I agree with Nuts. Just *don't* use rewritables (RW). They can be temperamental. And above all you want your recovery disks to be reliable.

Just to add here;

I assume the lappy has a dvd rw drive,if so ...create the recovery disc on a dvd-r as opposed to possibly 6 cd-r's.
