I've backed up my D drive on 2 x 8 GB drives, and my partitioned C drive (only XP Pro SP3 on board).
I know that this is cheaper than an External Hard Drive, but, is it as good?

The total number of flash drives is 3. Hope I've not confused everything.

No
there is a finite number of write process to a flash drive and they are nowhere near as reiable as and external drive.

you should always backup to two different media sources.

i.e. external drive and DVDs.
