Ghost and W2k System Restore

    I am just starting to learn about system backups (with W2k and Ghost) and a
    little nervous about experimenting.

    Does this back up arrangement make sense?:
    1) Back up my *entire* partition with Ghost .
    2) With the W2k BackUp Wizard, back up only the *system files* (not the
    entire partition).

    My thinking was that if there is a crash I can first use the W2k BackUp
    Wizard to restore only the system files (and not overwrite any other
    non-system files, so the most recent data is preserved).
    Then, if that doesn't work, use Ghost and restore the entire partition (but
    overwriting non-system files with older Ghost files).

    Any help or suggestions appreciated. Thanks
