I'd like to copy a system disk, with OS and all. Is it possible and what's the best way to do it? I'd like it that after I've booted with my copy of the system disk, it'll be as if nothing had happened. :)

Most manufactures of HD supplies a CD that will allow you to copy your original HD to a new. If you have fat32 file system, the older versions of Ghost work just fine.

People have had various problems with various programs, I've found PowerQuest DriveImage 7 works best. But Symantec bought PowerQuest, so Ghost might be working OK these days.
