"What is the best way to store digital pictures for long time, say one
or
two generations?? "

At this point in time, your best bet is to print the pictures and store
them
in a vacuum (10**-4 torr) with absolutely no light. At the end of 2
generations
the owner can break the vacuum and observe the pristine photos. No
current
digital medium has this property of sufficient longevity and ease of
use. Ain't
going to be cheap.

Do separations onto plates and archival process.

That would be pretty stupid as the plates are not an archival medium and the
eventual re-assembly of the colour picture would involve guesses as to the
colour of the original. It also assumes there will be a way to turn them
into a photographic colour print later. Not only is there no guarantee of
that, there is a good chance that the only way to reassemble a colour
separation in a few years will be to scan the plates and use Photoshop.
The best way to archive is digital files, which can exist in more than
one place.
