Ghost 2003. Writes an image to CD (or spans multiple CD's), and creates a boot disk that you can use to restore the image.
I wouldn't recommend it for daily/weekly/monthly backups or anything ... but for what you're talking about, like a new computer restore disk ... it's perfect. I've got mine set up with a default install on my laptop, all drivers, and updates (to that point), and basic software that I always use. Took 3 CD's at full compression. If I ever want to reinstall/restore, just boot from the floppy, and put the first CD in. Ghost will do the rest.
