How to create a recovery disk?

Hi bought a new laptop a couple of weeks ago. Get message after start up to prompt me to make recovery disk. It says to do this press F8 on boot up. So, when I turn my laptop on should I just press F8 before the windows screen appears? Will it then ask me to insert blank the disks? Just a little worried I may do something to harm my computer on boot up! I have bought the Amilo Fujitsu 2515 if that helps with answers. thanks

When you switch on start tapping F8 before windows loads.

You should then be confronted with a menu, which will presumably have the option to create a recovery DVD. You cannot do any harm.

thanks, back up successful. I found the instructions that come with the laptop. It was a little complicated without.
