Can I run my laptop from my USB Hard Disk?

Couple of questions...
I would like to be able to boot up and run my laptop from the usb hard drive.
How would I have to save my data to enable this. Using XP backup or 'files and settings' wizard? Or copy everthing on the C: drive to the usb disk?
Can I install XP on my hard drive (E:) when it is already on my C: drive? Any help would be appreciated.
I'm experimenting with my new drive and I would like to know what is the best way to back up everything I need to make my pc safe from an internal disk crash. Thanks and regards, Chris
