  • Saying something clever is easy,when you r stupid.
PCLinuxOS has a script called mylivecd, which allows the user to take a ‘snapshot’ of their current hard drive installation (all settings, applications, documents, etc.) and compress it into an ISO CD/DVD image. This allows easy backup of a user’s data and also makes it easy to create your own custom live CD/DVD.

Is it possible for Sparkylinux to have such a script?

Try Sparky Backup System - 'sparky-backup-sys' package in our repo.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

I've installed it. Thanks. Can this iso be installed on a different system with different configuration?

Of course.
It's a copy of your sparky installation so it has all drivers, tools, apps, etc. to run on another machine.

If you're refering to a different hardware configuration, then you shouldn't have problems. The only place where you can expect problems are the proprietary graphic drivers if you use any.
There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)
