two ways here :-

1. THe registry are kept under two files user.dat and system.dat This two files are kept under winnt directory or if you are running win98 or winme it is under windows directory. JUst copy both of the files.

2. Through registry
Run regedit then from the file menu, select export registry file. From the export branch select all.

Are you using NT backup?  If so, select the checkbox labeled System State Data on the backup tab.

my apology to hardy100 for the worng info, i have mistaken for the OS here. win2000 doesnt have both of the file. But you can backup your registry through regedit.
