I bought Drive Image about a year ago. It also came with Drive Copy, can't find which version. Having trouble with it, but before I go any further, Is this bundled version, or any version, good for a 3 year computer man?

Yes it is.  As long as it is not too old of a verison it should be fine.  If you bought it a year ago, did you buy an older version?
But, to get a specific answer, you need specific details in your question, i.e. verison information and such.

 > 3 year computer man?

Not sure what you mean by this.

As a general rule, if you use the sector copy options of a disk copying package (like -IA and -IB for Norton Ghost) then it should work regardless of how old the computer is. DriveImage supports this mode by default so I cannot percieve of any inherent problem.

I am not familiar with DriveImage, but if it's possible to do this, use a boot disk to back up the drive using the DOS version, instead of running the Windows-based version. The feature set might be more limited but I tend to find it avoids most peculiarities regarding locks.

Yes, you need to run Drive Copy on the floppy disks.
You shuld be able to make 2 bootable floppy disks that you can run DriveCopy from.
You make them, and then boot the PC from the first disk by inserting it in the floppy drive and rebooting.
