    get your hands on a copy of norton ghost 2002.

    You'll need a blank floppy and few blank cd's depending on the swize of your harddrive.

    Use Norton Ghost. For XP be sure to use Norton Ghost 2002 or higher. Each partition will have to be done separately if they are considered different drives.

    Create a boot floppy and boot to it. Switch floppies with the one Norton created for you and run the ghost executable from floppy drive. The rest is menu driven and not too terribly complex.

    Just make sure you have someplace to write your image. It will have to be formatted with a FAT partition so it can be seen when booting from a floppy. And it will have to be big enough to accomodate whatever size of data you have on your source drive.
