I don't know Acronis software so I'm generalising here:
Firstly - there is no point in having a backup folder on your desktop, the desktop is just a folder on your C: drive and if the drive dies your backup goes with it. I'm sure you realise that but I'm just clarifying.
Secondly - you don't need to use Nero at all. Windows XP has its own burning software - just drag'n'drop the files to the drive.
I think you should have a look at the Acronis package again for their recommendations, I would have thought it was capable of directing the backup direct to the DVD drive without putting it in a folder first.
