Hi All,

I am putting together an old system for a family that does not have a computer.
I have loaded all the software and everything works great.

But now I am looking for a software that will allow me to create system restore CD's (System has CD writer) , just like you get when you nuy a new computer these days.

I was going to use NERO, but it wants to do the entire partition (30 CD's), when the entire hard drive only has 3-GB of software/space used.

These people know nothing of computers, and I don't want to have to fix it every couple of months.

Any software out there that can create bootable CD's that will completely erase and restore a hard drive to it's current state?

Money for the software is no object. BUT NO FLOPPY DRIVE USE !!!!!

How do the Computer Manufacturers do it?

Thank You

I usually make a GHOST rescue cd of every computer i use. That way when something goes wrong i can bring the OS back to the state it was in when i made the cd( or multiple cd's.

Heres some information on ghost.
