I want to backup my pc using Microsoft windows XP Backup utility which expects a floopy disk for creating a bootup disk as part of the full pc backup.

How do I specify to the utility that I wish to use a CD instead of a floopy disk because my pc don't have floppy drive?

Thanks all.
Beta - I am backing up onto an external drive successfully. Only problem is with the floppy disk which the utility expect for the bootup disk creation.
