Had seen this howto before but thought there was also one using apt-get? Can’t find that one yet but will post if/when I do 🙂

Basically it involves generating a text file of all installed packages and then saving it to a disk, remote host, email, etc. Then on a fresh install this list can be used to install all of the previous packages automagically. Useful for reinstalls or mass deployment over similar systems!
