    Eddie5659 has a good suggestion there. I've been using Ghost for the past 4 months now and I think the program is outstanding. Another Program that I have heard others talk about is Drive Image.

    XXCopy will do it for free. If you decide to do it that way I think there are some technicalities with making it bootable with Win2k and XP. If you just want a backup and don’t need it bootable XXCopy is the price leader: http://www.xxcopy.com/

    Ghost is more versatile and compresses the backup. It has an explorer to get individual items. If you don’t have XP there is a good deal on Norton System Works Pro for $13 plus about $5 shipping. It is the retail version and not OEM, so you get the full updates for the AV and support. The manuals are on the CD. It comes with Ghost, Norton anti-virus, Cleansweep, WinFax and Norton Utilities. I’m not crazy about Utilities but all of the others are good programs to have: http://www.directdeals.com/product.asp?id=376

    If you have XP they have 2002 System Works Pro for $35. It has everything the 2001 version does plus GoBack.

    A lot of people prefer Powerquest Drive Image. Don’t know of any good deals on that. I use Ghost.
