Yet another backup question

Shortly I intend upgrading from Win 98SE to XP Home. I have read that it is better to do a full install, so I would like to do a full backup onto cd, prior to the upgrade.
What is the best and simplest software to use to achieve this, ie. something that is compatible with both operating systems?

Drive Image 7 is for XP and 2000 only but it also includes Drive image 2002 which is for 98.

Thanks Powerless
Just to clarify this in my own mind, I use 2002 to make a drive image, replace Win 98 with XP,then would I use 2002 or Drive Image 7 to reinstall data, and wont this put Win 98 back in too?

I would do the upgrade first cos then you can back out if you need to. Iron out any problems and then format and do the full install later.
