How to inventory stuff for insurance purposes?

So a gaffer got all his expensive shit stolen, games gone, standard theft fare. Thankfully he'll be getting his stuff replaced because he had renter's insurance.

Now what is renter's insurance, why/how is it different from home insurance?

Also, the guy got his electronics replaced because he had receipts from waaaaaay back for every single thing. I don't have that. So that story got me paranoid, and for a guy who has the same setup as the victim I'm really paranoid.

How do I make an insurance acceptable inventory so that if the unfortunate would ever to happen I can regain all/most part of it from my insurance company? Is Microsoft Works or something I can use? And I'd have to take pictures of the item too I guess right?

    I have serial numbers for just about everything and photos of EVERYTHING. I have a lot of tools that have no #s on them, so I just opened each drawer and took a picture.
    Then put the pictures on a disk and hide it(Because they might steal your computer as well)

    Instead of just hiding the disc, consider also using the free trials of remote backup sites like Mozy in case of something like a fire.
