I run XP Home and have 32 gig used on my machine.

I have never backed up my system, but figure it's probably wise to do so. Any sugesstions on what I should use? I can burn to DVD or CD.

Hey NuclearSmegma - ya gotta be kidding us - no one is from an island in the middle of a river in Harrisburg, PA! Man, your rig gotta be glowing!!:D :D
<Only kidding - couldn't pass up the opportunity - I am orignally from the Reading area>

There are many opinions on what to use, there are some programs about that work just fine for a backup image. I use Drive Image 2002, and there is also Norton's System Ghost.

Which one is best can be answered 1000 times on this forum and it pretty much all comes down to what you feel comfortable with.

I would suggest you do a search for Drive Image 2002 or Norton
System Ghost on this forum and give the threads a read.


Here's some info on the products:

Norton Ghost here

Nero will burn a backup set, automatically spanning as many disks as you need.
Be prepared, a backup of this size will take some time, and quite a few disks.
