I always liked Powerquests Driveimage Pro I think it was, which I heard has been gobbled up by Norton and is more or less Ghost 9.0 now.
Yep, the Symantec page for Ghost now even says "with DriveImage technology"
Acronis has a cool util that I use for this called TrueImage. It will even create a hidden partition on your HD, and "hide" the Image in there. If the person screws up their system, the program will restore the C: partition from that hidden partition. It will burn the image to a CDRW/DVD as well. www.acronis.com
