How do you make a recovery bootable cd to restore your harddrive. Companies like Dell, HP, Compaq, etc.. include a recovery cd with their systems that enables you to boot from it and recover your system. I noticed that HP has files that have "paq" as an extension. Thanks a lot!

Thanks Jhance!
Your solution did not entirely work because the xcopy command did not copy some system and /or hidden files. I want to use other switches with the xcopy command (to copy hidden and system files). These switches work from a dos window but they don't work in dos (or command prompt only). Your continuous input is greatly appreciated.
