Cloning NTFS partitions

So I'm planning to swap drives between my eMac and my Windows tower since the tower needs space more than the Mac does.
I'd really prefer to NOT have to reinstall Windows and all the games, so I want to find a program to clone my NTFS drive to my external. I tried WinClone, but it doesn't want to work on my eMac, says something about the architecture (Intel only perhaps?). CCC only works with HFS, is there anything else I could use?eMac 1.5ghz, 256mb ram, 40gb hdd, Sony cd burner
2g iPod Shuffle 1gb, 2g iPod Touch 16gb

If you want to clone a NTFS drive to an external, it makes sense to use a program that works from Windows. Acronis True Image is a program that works nicely - however, it's not free. You can also try "partimage" which is free. This is a Linux program which you can run from a live CD.
