I have just bought a 1000GB external hard drive to allow all 3 computers we have to be backed up.
I was hoping to use Windows backup but XP does not allow back up to work without a floppy disk. (Computers are all 2-4 years old but do not have floppy disks.)

I was looking at Ghost but I would need 3 copies for all 3 computers.

Does anybody know of a good free Back up software for XP

Are you looking for something just to backup personal information, or are you looking for a cloning program?

For backing up personal information, I use Cobian Backup.

I haven't used it, but a free cloning option you might want to check out:
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, CPU: Phenom II X4 955 Deneb BE, HS/F: CoolerMaster V8, RAM: 2 x 1G Kingston HyperX DDR2 800, VGA: ECS GeForce Black GTX 560, PSU: Antec TruePower Modular 750W, Soundcard: Asus Xonar D1, Case: CoolerMaster COSMOS 1000, Storage: Internal - 2 x Seagate 250GB SATA, 2 x WD 1TB SATA; External - Seagate 500GB USB, WD 640GB eSATA, 3 x WD 1TB eSATA
