Default How to create mirror HD on USB HD that is bootable?

I need to create a mirror of a computer on a USB hard disk thart is bootable. Any suggestions for how to do this? Is PCBeginner a good program for this? If not, what other software?

We want the USB disk to be the movable computer and the PC that makes it to be the back up. That way we can have our computer on a portable USB drive.

Operating system is XP.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Does your bios allow you to boot from USB or "MASS storage Device" ?

Yes, BIOS allows booting from USB port. All the computers involved are new Dells.

Did you click on the linked tutorial ?
That should explain everything pretty well.
I think the tutorial is even based off of dell systems.
