My hard drive is dying - I've received an error on boot that says as much from the BIOS indicating hardware failure.

I've managed to get back into Windows and backed up my important data. But it would be even better if I could just take a cloned image of the computer and drop it onto the new hard drive that's coming tomorrow. If I could make my life that easy...

What's good software out there for cloning an XP Pro, SP3 machine? Any opinions or ideas? (This is an enterprise setting, so going out to buy a copy of Norton Ghost isn't exactly viable.)

That was... a beautiful experience. I'm up and running again.
