I tried to use ghost to backup my entire HD and make it to 2-3 recovery DVDs , But that was too complex and costly (need GSS 2.0+ )

So i examined my harddisk again , i  found the disk contains 4partitions
(please examine my screenshot diskpattern.gif)
94MB (EISA Config) || 10.00GB Recovery (D:) NTFS Partition || 220.9GB OS (C:) NTFS partition || 2.5GB partition

So when i browsed partition , I noticed that it includes WIM style Vista Image (i.e) Factory state of Dell XPS vista. (Please have a look at attached file (image.gif)

So my question is , is there a way to "Burn the recovery partition to 2-3 Bootable restore DVDs" ?

I had a similar recovery partition with Sony VAIO UX micropc , but sony included a Burn Recovery DVDs partition. Since Dell XPS 1530 doesnt have such an option , How do i make recovery dvds from this partition .

Any help would be appreciated , Experts!.

You can use Paragon Drive Backup:

to backup/restore all your partitions.
 
In case you would like to copy the Factory.wim to a recovery CD you should use WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK)).
 
Thanks.
