How to share one pgp-key on multiple machines?

I am about to upgrade my computer to 11.04. But before I do I want to backup my PGP key that I use for signing my ubuntu .deb packages. So that if something goes wrong in the upgrade I don't lose it.

How to I go about backing up my pgp key?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Although the answer to question marked as duplicate could well be used to answer this question, they are fundamentally different questions. I want to securely backup my PGP key is completely different from I want to use my PGP key on multiple computers. Because I have no intention of using my PGP on multiple computers I just want to back it up so it won't get lost. – trampster Aug 18 '11 at 2:24
If someone asked whats 4 + 5 and someone else asked whats 8 + 1. Would you say these are duplicate questions? Yes the answer to both is the same, but the question is different. IE the answers are duplicate but he questions most definitely are not duplicate. – trampster Aug 24 '11 at 4:52
