To begin with make a backup of just your data. That way you can deal with the system without worrying about data loss.

You can backup to CD or DVD, but depending on how much data you have that can mean many discs. A simpler, and I think more reliable, solution is a high capacity flash drive. 8 gig and 16 gig flash drives are very affordable. The ideal size is one that all the data will fit on so a backup will not be interrupted.
