You can also, if you have partitioned the drive, place the image of
each on the 2 partitions. However, a warning about Ghost.

I use a dual boot 98 SE XP+ machine in the hamshack. C is the 98 hd
with E as the partition. However, I discovered one thing. DO NOT use
98 to "ghost" the 98 partitions. I don't know how it does it, but it
will wipe out your XP files completely.

Using XP, I can back up all 4 drives without difficulty.
