When I bought a new motherboard last year it came with a Norton CD called
Ghost, which I have heard very good things about and does just what you
want. I don't know how large the program is, or how fussy it might be to
snag off the CD and email, but suspect a "way" is possible. Most likely it
is best if this is done off the list via direct email otherwise you might
get 7 copies emailed to you.
