I have a small IT Firm that has a broad range of clients from 3pc's to 100pc's.  I am looking to have a hard drive that is setup for each of my client's that has an HD image of the pc's in their office.  So if disaster strikes I can  rebuild the workstation very quickly.  Obvious looking for a fairly cheap solution.  Thanks for your help.

1)if you want a free image of your hard drive, this will do it:
http://www.runtime.org/dixml.htm

2)Check This

You Have 2 Commercial tools i.e
 Norton Ghost 10. available at
http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/products/backup_recovery/ghost10/index.html
 Drive Image
http://www.drive-image.com/

& Free Tools Such as  :
HD CLone & Ranish Partition Manager.

3)If you're wanting a cheaper method that what I described, Acronis True Image is a very similar program and it has a free 15 day trial. You might go ahead and take this route since it sounds like a one-time deal.
I don't believe it boots off a cd like Ghost, but go ahead and install it on the host computer. You should be able to plug the non-fuctional drive as a slave and then make a copy of the image.
