You can make an image of the hd / partition with an imaging program such as ghost or drive image.

I misunderstood your post. If you are trying to "move" xp from one computer to another, you will probably have problems. Unless the chipsets are the same, it may not boot. It is possible to do this, however it is more work than just swaping drives or restoring an image.
