I would recommend Ghost. I've had some problems with Acronis on some systems.

Do yourself a favor BACKUP!

It really depends on what you are going to do...obviously ghost computers, but a lot depends on your setup, how many computers, what type of functionality you want. Your best choice is either Ghost or Acronis True Image. Personally I use both...depending on what I’m doing.

If i had to pick 1 over the other, i would choose ghost.

I prefer Drive Image. Also, this is more of a Software question than Hardware. :)

Life is more painless for those who are brainless.

I'm using Ghost 2003 and it does everything I need it to do. It will even mix and match media type when imaging. I start with DVD and if the is a small balance I will use a CDR. I believe the newest version of Ghost will also do incremental backup.

I use Norton Ghost 9.0 It does the whole job and does it well.

Can you even run drive image across a network?

I thought it was only for local cloning
Drive to drive

did they change it?

Thank you all for your input. Very much appreciated. And Jennifer - good catch. I was in the Hardware forum and didn't switch over to Software when I left this post.

I'm trying to avoid the pain I just went through with a crashed hard drive...with having to reinstall XP and all my drivers etc. And if the HD crashed on one of my computers obviously it can happen on the others in my house. I was thinking that ghosting my hard drives would be a good solution. I've also purchased an external hard drive to back up my Office docs/music files, etc.
