may be your file system is corrupt or your external hard is formatted into a filesystem that it's not supported by the backup programs. but usually the FAT32 and FAT16 are the most mailsafe file systems for Windows.
what you do is to copy/paste the data you don't want to loose and then go to
My computer -> right click on the drive icon -> format and choose fat 32. Then try backing up your system again.

Well fair play to you, windows 3.1!, I must dig out my disks and check how many files there are on disk 1, but meanwhile, make sure that "all files" option is selected when coping to the floppy in case there are any hidden files!

Press Delete at start up, change the first boot device to your cd drive, then F10 to save settings and restart. Put your Windows XP disc in the drive and press any key when prompted to boot from the cd.

typically you don't need to press ctrl at all -- usually f11 does the trick -- or going into accessories and system tools and looking for factory restore or something similar, the program has different names depending on the manufacturer. System Restore will only bring it back to a previous date...

There should be a setting in the BIOS to ignore errors so you can get it to boot. It's usually set to halt on all errors by default.
