I've learned a lot since going digital. I came up with a process for storing and protecting my photos. Folders are set up on my computer by year and then month and then event. Example: 2005 - December - Decorating the tree - Christmas Eve - Christmas morning, etc. I then back them up on disc. 3 months per disc works well for me. So four discs per year, and I make two of each disc just for extra protection.
