    restore cds (xp sp1)

    My laptop came with restore cds. I recently used them to get rid of sp2 and go back to the way things were when I brought it home. I worked out great. And it was so easy and quick. My question is: is there a way to make a set of cd's like that for my other computers that would make things so easy like the ones that came with the laptop? I know about backing up data, but I would like to copy the entire hard drive to cds and then in the future when things go haywire, I could format and restore the whole thing from the cds. Any ideas?

    You can do this with a disk imaging tool, such as Acronis TruImage, or Symantec Ghost

    I have moved this post from the Windows XP forum to the Software forum, as that is where you will find discussions of this sort of tool.
