Backing up machines and storing it on a network drive

Hey guys, So recently my boss asked me to have a setup in place to be able to backup everyone's machines once a month (XP, Vista, 7) and if needed, could be restored as well. So basically creating an image of the machine, maybe zip it and put it on the network drive. Now there's an insane amount of freeware out there and that's where I am lost. What should I go with? Any advices or experiences anyone wants to share would be helpful. Thanks.

Is nobody recommending Acronis True Image any more? I always thought this was the favoured backup/restore program.

Well, I paid £14.95 for a True Image upgrade to 2012 edition, and I have backed up with it. Not quite a ssimple as the Version 10 that I had, but it is fine
