Backing up system state

Hey I know this is a simple one, but im new to backup exec. Im using backup exec 9. How do i select system state and the data i want to save from Backup exec 9.

I know how to choose the data, but im unsure on how to select the system state, incase the system goes down. If there anything else I should back up in case of a system failure? From what i was told it was just the system state. Up for any suggestions.

It's under Shadow Copy Components. Just select that.

Under Source->Selection, you should see the checkbox for system state.  I would also backup the windows (or winnt if 2000) folder and any other important folders you may have

The best thing to do is back up the entire c:\ drive and if you have other drives any data that's important to your organization

Don't back up anti-virus folders, anti-spam, and the backup folders. Also leave out windows\temp. Oh yeah, don't back up that 10GB pagefile either. Get version 9.1. Should be a free download if you have 9.0.

No shadow copies selection? Is this a remote server, or the local? Never heard of that happening on a local install.
