What is the best software app to get for making an exact clone of your hard drive? Copycatx seemed like it might be good. Anything else someone can recommend?

SuperDuper! (silly name, good program) is widely considered the best backup programs for OS X. Whether Leopard will change all that is hard to tell.

Here's one of a nice comparison charts for OS X backup software:

The article doesn't mention Copycatx and I haven't used it, so your mileage may vary. Also, the article is one year old.

With the exception of the disappointing lack of email notification (which apparently there's a hack involving Growl) I find it easy enough for novice friends and family, and I like what is said about a full system backup/recovery.
