photos are always stored on two forms, one on HDD, and another on DVD. if my HDD fills up i buy another! eheheh using those IDE to USB thingys to connect.
as for sorting... i use three broad catogories, since i shoot weddings mainly, there'll be three directories, "matrimonial", "other commercial" and "others", so all non-paid shoot all lump into others, be it travel or my gf, or my frens or watever lar.. ahha doesn't happen often, no time to shoot much.
each shoot will have it's only directory under one of those broad catogories. i will index it then date then description.
the index is so that i can sort it by name (which is dafault) and still keep it in chrono order.
as for file names, i leave it default. if i need to do a batch rename i use ACDSee and it'll be in running number.
i only shoot jpgs, never in RAW, not for an S2...
well that's just my way.. eheh hope it helps.

i think irfanview is more popular cos it's totally free. acdsee i think it's shareware, or else it's like a full software now. i'm using super old version so was still in shareware stage?

You can use the file browswer of Photoshop CS to batch rename etc also.
Most people will advise that you do a backup on CD/HDD on your originals (unedited, straight from memory card/camera) and then a second backup on your edited prints.

Anybody tried Picasa? A small good program that will automatically catalog your photos as you copies them in to your hdd...
