    New notepad, with clean XP home freshly installed.

    Would like to copy HD to HD at DOS level using 2002 version of Power Quest.
    *Thus pretty much ensuring a successful copy back to HD if required. This
    would be easy IDE to IDE on a desktop*

    On the new notepad, only an external USB2 HD Device will be available for
    backup, and as far as I can see USB HD's are not supported at DOS level
    *Power Quest*.

    Any advice preferably not requiring the purchase of new software ;-) greatly
    appreciated.

    Look at what some linux live cd (knoppix in particular) can do for you.
