    I am using Win XP Pro. I have my data backed up but would like to back up my System boot files, the Windows protected files, the registry and the COM+ Class files but the back up program only shows backing up the entire HD (not necessary). All the above is simialr to System State in the Windows Server 2003 program.

    Anyway to back them up manuelly to a CD "just in casse"

    Maybe the Automatic System Recovery is something you could look at (Start > Help), but you'll need a third-party backup app for the specific files you mentioned.

    Cobian and Karen's Replicator are good, free ones.

    It would seem that with all those files being backed up, you'd be better off and it would be much easier just to make a compressed image of the entire drive with Acronis, Paragon, or Partition Saving (free partition backup and restoration).
