What product can I use to make disk image copies on an XP Media Center Machine?

I use Norton Ghost to make regular images on XP Pro Machines. I have some that run XP Media Center. Ghost won't install and Media Center is not listed as an operating system that Ghost will work with. I want an application that will work with this operating system and an external USB drive so I can make full image backups that I can restore to new disk with if needed.  In searching various products, none seem to reference XP Media Center.

Thanks

My Understanding that XP Media Center merely means that the Newer Windows Media and various additional features to make the user have a better experience with various Media formats:

I would think if ghost can restore Win XP, you should be fine with the version here as well.

I think that Acronis True Image will install and image an XP Media Center PC.
