Acronis Trueimage copies the whole of the partition selected.Copy the C:/ partition, which will have your XP installation on it, to your new partition. You can't select which bits you want to copy,it copies the whole C: partition.
Once you have created the image on your new partition this can be opened, through Acronis or clicking on the image file, and you can open/move individual files/folders back to C.

Make the bootable CD from 'Bootable rescue media builder' in Acronis to allow you to boot from Acronis if the system fails. I found that the bootable CD works but couldn't get the bootable floppies to work.
