There are additional considerations on this machine. There are five user accounts, six users, and over 150 programs installed on this machine. I wish to keep as many browser settings, browser add-ons, personal configurations, programs, etc. intact as possible. Restoring this much manually would be a monumental task.

True Image is the type of application that you need to backup and restore a complete image of the entire machine and all the settings.
Are there any errors being shown when the machine boots or runs?
Make the bootable rescue CD and boot from it to be sure that you can see the hard drive in the machine and the external drive.

Image restore is preferred but cloning could also be used. Cloning copies the contents from the old hard drive to the new. Image restore allows you to restore the exact state the machine was in when the image was created.
Am I going to be cloning the existing disk, or doing an image restore? I don't understand the difference.
Yes everything is preserved as long as you are making a full disk backup.
Does the image preserve my saved emials in Yahoo! Classic and Gmail? browser configurations, etc.?
Yes but you will need to reboot to accomplish this. Accessing the BIOS depends on the machine you have. Please post the deatils of your machine.
The instructions include a change in BIOS. Is this safe for me to attempt? I have absolutely no understanding of BIOS; however, I can research it if this machine holds up long enough. (I have not turned it off, and it is running silently.)
This is dependent on your machine. As I suggested above posting the details will help determine what you have.
Instructions differ for with and without a hidden partition. How do I determine which I have?
