    I used to use Norton Ghost. Boot to a cd then run Ghost and image to another hard drive. As the meerkat says "Simples"! Or Arconis do much the same thing. Just be aware that if your new system isnt the same as the old one there may be too many hardware changes and you'll get the BSOD on boot.

    Dude you have been given the information, other than actually doing the work for you directly there isn't too much left to do.. go to either the Acronis or Laplink websites and have a read.

    Personally I wouldn't make backup DVD's. I tend to build the machine, install the drivers and applications and then sysprep the machine and backup to a portable hard drive using CloneZilla which I've just started using and can say I'm really impressed with it. Using DVD's you find they get scratched or lost and waste a lot of DVD's when you tweak the image.
