Default Backup Programs

Can anyone tell me about (preferably shareware) software to use to backup my hard drive? I heard Norton Ghost was hard to use. Money is an issue, time is not. I plan on backing up on CDs, unless this is a bad idea.

I want to back everything up before I download SP2. Thanks

Saveing a Windows install never made much sense to me.

SP2 will backup your settings and everything about Windows itself. A CD can do the rest. Anything else will either be crap if its shareware or expensive.

well i have to say that i've heard that SP2 has to be installed a sertain way, if not it can create caos on your computer.

i am waiting til all the bugs are worked out 1st, then i'll try it out...but until then....no way !!

What are you crazy folks all up about? I installed the Beta Perfectly while Watching TV and Encoding a CD. I then installed the latest ones doing the same and writing my Story - they both worked!
