If you have XP PRO, it's already installed. Locate "Ntbackup.exe" in the system32 folder.
If you have XP Home, insert the cd and navigate to ValueAdd>Msft>Ntbackup>Ntbackup.msi.
Double click "Ntbackup.msi" to install.
For OEM systems that have neither, you can use a freebie like Erunt. Read the FAQ's first.
