How would I image the contents of my system running on Windows 2000 so that if the hard drive crashes (as it has 2 times in the past) I can restore the exact current image onto a new hard drive. Looking forward to hearing from you

Norton/Symantec's Ghost is a good product for this purpose: http://www.symantec.com/sabu/ghost/ghost_personal/

As sirbounty suggested, Ghost is great for this, as is PartitionMagic or indeed DriveImage, or a bunch of others.

How big is your hard disk? If you got a second drive the same size, you could put it in the PC alongside the original and ghost the partition on a regular basis. Or you could get hold of some backup software which would do the same job for you.
