Novice needs advice on backups

I read most of the 180 hot topic comments, but realized that Rick Broida doesn't actually moderate it, and I don't know whose suggestion makes sense for me. I have 2 desktops witha D-Link router, both using XP. Main PC has two hard drives C & F both with XP. F: is my data drive but has software installed (whenever the option to do so is given) as well. Upgrades likely find their way to the appropriate drive, who knows? Anyway, I would like to back-up my computer in total--not just data files, but operating system and programs. Years ago I used to get the computer store to make a disk copy--is that still a valid option?
