    I have both, they both do a job. If you are running XP with NTFS partitions you need the latest version which I think is 7.5 for Ghost. Buy which ever is the cheapest.

    One advantage of Norton Ghost is that it fits onto a bootable disk (Not sure about Drive Image).

    Most of the corporates use Ghost which should say something about it.

    AS you are using ME you will not have problems as you will not have any NFTS partitions

    Drive image also fits on a floppy, both do the job equally well, either will do.
