Hello all good mac people! i love my macbook. including the hiss.... i am preparing to partition my drive, 12 gigs to xp, the rest to mac... and i was wondering what the easiest method of "backing up" my mac's present files and settings.... i think it's called a disk image, is that so? so any advice? what is a disk image? how do i put this image back onto the mac partition after i use the disk utility tool? i do have an external hd, presently formatted to fat32 so it doubles as a pc backup as well.. thanks, r.
