System Image is a backup of the hard drive
You can also make a system restore point (which to me is the best feature of 7)
of the OS. You have a problem, you can go back into time to when it was good
You also have back up and restore, to back up your documents.etc.

it reminds me my first machine, i did'nt own it though, at those times ownig a workstation costs too much. it was a sun workstation running some version of unix. it had emacs and i used it for lisp programming for my university...lot of my friends bought ibm pc for playing dungeons and dragons games(at those time those single tasking pc's had no actual usage as they cant host any serious stuff other than paint and those who cant prepare document by programming....groff and tex all the way) ....

i remember when i first used vi i had to turn off my terminal as i did not figure out how to get out of it. although the first experience was horrendous but eventually vi and emacs kind of made a love triangle with me. back those days compiler warning was so useless and debuggers are so primitive that sometimes programmers had to poke around the pure binary core dumps. our professor actually could find bugs in pure binary coredumps as he actually managed to remember all machine instruction numarically...
i bought a ibm pc in eary 90s when i first entered in a job field. it came with some version of windows , may be 3.1 but i'm not sure. although that machine is primarily used for playing card games.....

I note many members are using 64 bit, when I got my PC yesterday the guy gave me the Windows 7 disk in a blue box and there are two gold Windows disks one 32 bit and one 64 bit, I take it I just keep them ?, my PC has the 32 bit installed.

Yes, just keep them. You can switch form 32 or 64 as many times as you like. The rule is, however, one machine at a time.
You could also save them until you have a problem. Sometimes situations, like BSOD, require a reinstall. In that case, you have the DVD and you are all set. Sometimes the DVD can also be used for a procedure called a repair install. A repair install is used to fix problems with the OS, such as corruption.
