    Hi there,

    well I just hope newbie's questions are welcome. For one thing I require a tweak or program that allows me to copy the contents of my bootable partition (c:\, that is) on a different HD, so that I could swap those HDs and run the computer entirely on that second HD. I know there are a number of programs out there which would enable me to do so but I don't know any of these by name, so using Google becomes quite bogus.

    I know it's a piece of cake for you guys out there, so please give me a name or a link.

    Thanks. Spiderman

    I find that Norton Ghost is one of the best for copying from HD to HD

    Drive Image doesn't do it

    After all, I decided to shave the HD and do a virgin XP installation. I used to be a 95 hardliner, so who cares if running a computer means installing a new OS once a qarter year?

    Actually, I'd like to have my gay Spiderman dancing as a *.gif at the left navigator column. How does that work?
