I'm running XP and would like to make image backups of my boot drive. Is
there a way this can be done as well as making a 'recovery' disk in the
event of the need to restore the boot drive?

My vote would be Actonis True Image-Home or
True Image-Workstation depending on your needs.

I use this all the time and it's excellent. It not only will create a
boot CD, but will also create an image of the entire drive for later
restoring in case of emergencies. You can store the image on a DVD or
you can store it on a shared network PC and the boot cd will find it.

Hey Mike and Dave;
Symantecs "Save and Restore" is the new and improved Ghost.
I thought I'd drink paint thinner before installing another Norton product
on my computer,but it's actually very user friendly and not a resource hog.
You can schedule backups and/or have event triggered backups i.e. if you
install new software.
I put the backups on my external hard drive,but you can put them on to a CD
or DVD.
I have not used the restore feature yet (I guess thats a good thing!),but
think it's worth checking out.
