I went looking for the backup utility in my XP-Home  (start > all programs > accessories > system tools) but it's not there.  Is there an easier way to "get it" other than going back to the Windows CD and re-installing?

easy way is in My Computer, right click on the drive you want to backup, select properties, then Tools. You should see BackUp function there.

it seems to me that you don't have it installed. If you have a windows installation cd(not OEM one), then do the following:

if you have an OEM version, then you won't be able to do this, coz this verison doesn't have it at all, in this way may be it's worth to look at some of the 3d party backup progs, like true image, norton ghost, etc.
