    I'd go for Norton Ghost, heard it's a treat to use for that.

    norton ghost or drive image pro are both excellent products for hard disk duplication and backup...

    xcopy does work with windows xp...

    Code:
    C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxxxx>xcopy /?
    Copies files and directory trees.
    XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W]
    						   [/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U]
    						   [/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z]
    						   [/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...]
      source	   Specifies the file(s) to copy.
      destination  Specifies the location and/or name of new files.
      /A		   Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
    			   doesn't change the attribute.
      /M		   Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
    			   turns off the archive attribute.
      /D:m-d-y	 Copies files changed on or after the specified date.
    			   If no date is given, copies only those files whose
    			   source time is newer than the destination time.
      /EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...
    			   Specifies a list of files containing strings.  Each string
    			   should be in a separate line in the files.  When any of the
    			   strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
    			   copied, that file will be excluded from being copied.  For
    			   example, specifying a string like \obj\ or .obj will exclude
    			   all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the
    			   .obj extension respectively.
      /P		   Prompts you before creating each destination file.
      /S		   Copies directories and subdirectories except empty ones.
      /E		   Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones.
    			   Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.
      /V		   Verifies each new file.
      /W		   Prompts you to press a key before copying.
      /C		   Continues copying even if errors occur.
      /I		   If destination does not exist and copying more than one file,
    			   assumes that destination must be a directory.
      /Q		   Does not display file names while copying.
      /F		   Displays full source and destination file names while copying.
      /L		   Displays files that would be copied.
      /G		   Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination that does
    			   not support encryption.
      /H		   Copies hidden and system files also.
      /R		   Overwrites read-only files.
      /T		   Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not
    			   include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes
    			   empty directories and subdirectories.
      /U		   Copies only files that already exist in destination.
      /K		   Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read-only attributes.
      /N		   Copies using the generated short names.
      /O		   Copies file ownership and ACL information.
      /X		   Copies file audit settings (implies /O).
      /Y		   Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
    			   existing destination file.
      /-Y		  Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
    			   existing destination file.
      /Z		   Copies networked files in restartable mode.
    The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
    This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.
