Is it possible to backup/burn a disk of an iPhoto book?

I have created a couple books and one is currently with Apple being printed, but I would like to be able to burn what I have done for archiving purposes, and/or transferring to another machine if at all possible.

But, the "Burn" option appears to be greyed out in iPhoto (v6). Is there another way to save the files? Are they stored anywhere in the iPhoto folders?

File/Print/Save as PDF :)

Yes, but...

It works, and gives me a pdf of most of the pages (doesn't do the blank inside covers), BUT it isn't a 'working' file - ie: one I can use to transfer to another machine, except as a printed/onscreen reference to use to rebuild the whole thing from scratch. Nor as a backup file to restore my work if something happened to my computer and/or drive. I guess I just backup the iPhoto photo folder and hope it is all in there somewhere.

I will do the pdf though, it does give me something tangible anyway...
