Hi On Holidays,

If you have XP Home Edition, have a look at this MSKB article:
HOW TO: Install Backup from the CD-ROM in Windows XP Home Edition
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=302894

No, you cannot backup to a DVD:
Windows Backup Does Not Back Up to CD-R, CD-RW, or DVD-R Devices

Have you tried Double click my computer then right click the disk you want to
backup, should be a Backup option there.

Odd that there is no backup option. You can d/load the installer package for
the backup program from here:

Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Backup.

What options do you have if you check the disk properties.
Right click disk, select properties, select Tools Tab. You should have Error
Checking, De-fragging and Backup by default on an XP Pro system.
