I need to make a complete system backup of a pc with windows xp, however my disc drive does not work - so, I can't make a copy onto a CD. How can I backup this pc to be able to re-install on a new pc?

If you are talking about taking an image of the disk, restoring it onto a new PC will not likely work. In many cases is will either not see the disk as bootable or will crash when Windows dries to load. You can make backups to anything, USB drive, DVD (I would not use a CD as they are a bit small these days for backups), network, cloud storage.
