If you have a cd burner, backup your data to cd.

you could create a few iso's and capture your whole drive (if you compressed some file first) but i guess depending on your system this could get rather messy. You could look for backup apps on the web some of these give you the option to create a disk image of your hard drive. Can you not make a dualboot system or is your hrd drive to full?

I will suggest a dual boot .linux will take care of the partition ,but to bi in the safe side do the burning CD backup.What I will recommend get a new hard disk and make a clean install JL
