Ghost is used for imaging purposes...this is where you create a copy of your whole system (or partition) for backup purposes. Let's say after one year and you want to revert your system back to exactly how it was when you created the ghost image...you just need to use the image and it should be "installed" in about 15 minutes....better than doing a clean Windows install every time.

Norton GoBack is more like a system restore feature. I wouldn't use GoBack if you plan on doing a full computer restore. Use XP's System Restore feature instead...
