Create image of Windows Server 2008 Standard

I am taking over a network.  This is a very small network.  I want to create an image of the server as it is.  This is a Windows Server 2008 Standard.  It has no RAID or anything, just very simple.  I have used Acronis in the past for workstations but I have never attempted a server image.  Can you suggest first either a version of Acronis that will work for my needs and also any suggestions or cautions you see fit to mention.  Thanks

Virtualization...
How about downloading Microsoft Virtual server and then clone the Windowws 2008 server

Or
download VMWARE Virtual Server and do the same...

If you want a snapshot of your original build then go with the Virtualization.
  • The MS and VM tools above are
  • You can always take clone every so often
If you need dynamic snapshots over time then tools like Acronis are your ticket
  • Of course a cost is involved

Microsoft virtual server and then cloning... interesting.  Do you have any resources about the cloning part so I can read up first?

the acronis is more familiar to me but I split the points up because I will look into the virtualization at a later date... thanks
