Hi,

Just started using OS X today.  I have some running Jaguar and some with Leopard.  

I don't have the original install media.

So, I would like to make backup images.  I'm looking for software to create the images and since I don't know anything about OS X I'm asking for advice.  

Thanks!

That link above doesn't talk about ghosting the OS.

I should have been clearer.  I would like to ghost the computer.  Or, also called create an image of the computer.  Is there any software that is for OS X for ghosting? Similar to the old program Norton Ghost for Microsoft Windows?
