Ok, I need to reinstall xp due to numerous BSOD. The only thing that I need to back up is my Tax software returns so that I will be able to import (or is it export?) them for next years taxes. That way I don't have to fill out all the forms from scratch. Can I just load my 2008 taxes onto a cd? Thanks!

Yes you can burn your tax folder to a cd-rom providing your operating system will work well enough to not BSOD before you can get it done.

Go Here for instructions: http://bestnetguru.com/winxp/burning_cd.html

Hope this helps!
