Back up or ghost of system

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hi,
When I do back ups on my PC laptop there is a wizard that I can use that allows me to do a full back up or a ghost backup onto my external hard drive.
On my mac so far I have been just picking out individual files that I want to back up and dragging and dropping them onto the hard drive but I would like to do a full ghost backup.
Is this possible on my mac?
Thanks in advance.
Alison.

Or there's SuperDuper. It's Tiger ready, easy to use and a little quicker then Carbon Copy Cloner (also a good program). This is a free demo, but if you buy the full version you can do incremental backups.
You should use Disk Utility to repair your startup disk (hard drive) as shown in Dr.Smokes repair thread before you make a clone of it.
Doing the things in his link is a good start for a monthly maintenance program.
Cheers!
