help with tar

http://www.unix.com – Hi, One of the system that I have has lot of disk errors. To be safe, I want to backup the system in case of disaster. To backup the system, I did this tar command but it's also doing the NFS mount on the system. Please advice, how to exclude all the NFS mount point, and only tar the system itself. Code: cd  /  tar -cvpf /home/nyus/fullbackup.tar --directory=/ \ --exclude=proc --exclude=sys --exclude=dev/pts --exclude=backups . (HowTos)
