Difference between WinRescue and XP Recovery Maker

Can you tell me the difference in the XP recovery features between WinRescue and XP Recovery Maker?
I understand that one uses floppies and DOS and the other a CD and Bart's PE, but how are they different in features and the way that I use them?

WinRescue makes backups and recovers them (among other things). XP Recovery CD only recovers. It has the same recovery abilities as WinRescue except that it does so on a boot CD. It recovers WinRescue backups and the registry portion of WinXP Restore Points. The one thing that XP Recovery CD has which WinRescue does not have is the Crash Troubleshooter. Since XP Recovery CD does not make backups and it is a good idea to have registry backups other than the ones WinXP makes, you should have WinRescue to make registry backups on a regular basis.
