Backups

I'm new to the PC game - XP (Home) was preinstalled on my machine, I have a boot floppy to recover the system after a crash but I don't have the CD which allows me to instal the backup utility - can anyone guide me to where I can download this, presumeably on the Microsoft site.
Failing that, can anyone suggest a good application for doing backups on XP.
Is it common practice to do a full backup of the hard disk using, say, 20 CDs or are there only certain files which require backup.?

Any guidance would be appreciated.
Thanks
Pete

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
