My laptop is Thinkpad T61p. Thinkpad do not give you windows xp disk when you purchase the laptop, unless you want to pay extra 40 dollars.

I play with linux stuff alot... so, reinstall system is pretty much like routine thing... So, I'm wondering is there a way to backup everything on windowsXP include all applications, drivers, data, etc?

copy your entire C drive onto an external HD

Better to make a disc image than manually copying the files-- you're likely to lose system info that way (and application settings).

You could use Ghost to make a hard drive image, then save it on an external HD. Then just use the provided Restore CD to restore the image to your hard drive whenever.
