Likely the 2nd (archive build) and 3rd (DVD burn) stages will be 
combined after they have worked for a few weeks with no obvious 
problems.  The first stage will remain distinct.  No need to burn 
multiple DVDs in day. Yes need to sync the SD card to the HDD 
frequently.

System backup is provided by debian.  Eg.
https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/i386/iso-cd/debian-9.6.0-i386-netinst.iso
No point in backing a widely available archive.  If the HDD fails, 
install another and proceed with *netinst.iso.

My own data is backed of course.  By Backup according to previous 
message.

Additional point: work at user status when possible; root status when 
necessary.  Arbitrary use of root status opens unnecessary 
vulnerability.

Not ignoring advice.  Replies concerning pushd, popd, tar and xorriso 
have been invaluable.

Thanks,               ... Peter E.
