Sure is a PAIN when you get a HD loaded with the OS and Apps you want..........then for some reason or another you have to reformat and go through the whole install dance again. I would like to load my OS (win2000) along with all service packs and other apps I want, then copy it all onto CDR's. I want to be able to use the CDR's to reinstall onto the same or a different HD if needed. Any recomendations as to a software product that will handle this task? By the way, I do not want to spend a whole lot of $$$ for it. Thanks for any advice. Richard.
