Of course, that's what Netinstall is for.

OK :)

In Configure script: I can browse: .backup file ? (only RSC extension or all )
When I select backup file then ROS will be instaled and this backup will be automatic restored ?

You can't use a .backup file, those are specific to that router (not just the model, but that very router).
The configuration restore can be used for restoring the router's configuration, exactly as it was at the backup creation moment, from a backup file. The restoration procedure assumes the cofiguration is restored on the same router, where the backup file was originally created, so it will create partially broken configuration if the hardware has been changed.

Do an export instead (same wiki link) and use the resulting script as a .rsc file.

OK, but when I need prepare: working CF card with ROS and old backup file to change card (ex. ROS update failed.)
RSC file is not enough.

HOW with netinstall?

Any chance to option: "backup file" in prepared CF card with netinstall.
