I've got two questions for whomever wants to tackle this. I have a Windows
XP (SP1).
Question #1: How do you do a backup before I install SP2? I already have
the files and folders in mind.

Question #2: When the files and/or folders are already on the CD-RW(that's
what I'll be using), how do you put them on SP2?

For that use the File-Transfer-Wizard,set as old computer,load the data
in a new folder you create (desktop is good),when its thru,transfer folder
to a cd.You can specify which folders/files you want saved,then in SP2,run
as new computer.

If you do not have any problems installing XP SP2 you will not need to do
anything. The backup is just in case something goes wrong.
