Getting tired of setting up accounts

Gents,

it is my task (among a couple of others) in our household to mess up both our desktop computer (Win XP SP2) and laptop (Vista Business) every once in a while.

We are a family of 4 so everytime after rerererere-installing XP/Vista I have to go through the "nice" job of setting up all 4 accounts (documents, music etc are on a NAS which is connected to the router) and policies again.

Is there a way to save the settings and policies so I will not have to spend too much time next time I've messed everything up? (a one click job would be nice!)

We are on a homenetwork (wired (desktop) and wireless (laptop) using a router) and use a NAS for our documents, pictures, music, movies etc etc but we're not in/on a domain.

If you need more info, pls let me know.

I remember reading somewhere that if you make and Image of your hard drive right after a fresh install of windows(drivers, settings, etc) that it can be restored very easily and faster than formatting. How you do it though completely eludes me...

With any imaging tool such as Ghost or Acronis :)
