Many ways to backup. If you don't have CD recording software, here an exit.

Read what they found at http://tips.oncomputers.info/archives2004/0401/2004-Jan-11.htm

Many machines have either dual CD drives (one is a CDRW) or a DVD. All the machines I see now can boot from CD or in a pinch you can use that helper diskette noted to get KNOPPIX up and running.

K3b is very easy to use and doesn't require an OS installed to save your files.

Sorry about that "issue", but if we didn't go legit, the forums would sink under water due to too much piracy and "missing CDs."

Re:thanks Bob

The simplest way to back up your files is to burn to a cdr or cdrw disk.
If you don't have a cd-rw drive, you can pick up one on sale at Office max for $20.00 bucks or less after rebates.
Floppy disks are not very practical due to the limited amount of space on a disk (1.44mb). A single cdr disk will hold over 700 mb of data.
