I bought an emachines computer with windows xp preinstalled. The machine is only about 5 years old. The hard drive is occasionaly making a whiring noise. I guess that it is going to go bad. I am going to buy a second hard drive and install that to back up my personal files. I would like to buy another HD to just run XP on. My machine did not come with a restore CD. Is there anything that I can do?

You could try contacting emachines for a set of disks. Normally they should only charge you the postage.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
