WindowsServer >> Backup Recommendatoin?

I just installing a new Dell server with Server 2003 and two workstation
running Xp Pro. There is a single data drive that is being backed up daily.

My concern is backing up the Windows installs of all the computers. I do
have a DVD DL burner on the server. Is there software that will let me burn
image
files of the Windows drives that will not be changing except for minor
updates every few weeks so that if any PC crashes I can limit my downtime in
getting the network repaired?

Windows OS293

WindowsServer >> Backup Recommendatoin? I think that Symantec's Norton Ghost may be perfect for you...

After implementing your backup solution, make sure you
test it. Too many people wait until the crunch comes, only
to discover that their backup is useless.

WindowsServer >> Backup Recommendatoin? I'm a big fan of DriveSnapshot.

You can take images while Windows is running. I've used this tool to
image and restore regularly and consistently.
