Default What should I do?

I have a wd 250gb hd that has xp home installed, along with all my apps. Currently the drive is divided into 2 partitions, 131gb 1st partition/119bg 2nd partition. The 1st part. has all the stuff on it, the second has nothing. I have Acronis True Image and Partition Magic, could someone please explain to me how i would break up the hd into smaller parts so that i could image it onto a dvd encase i would ever have hd failure and i could just restore tye image. Or is there an easier way all together?

direct Acronis so save the image onto your second drive, i doubt you are using all 131 gigs so the 119 should be fine to fit it. as you go through the steps in acronis there is an option to use default setting or advanced settings, when you go to advanced settings you will see an option to split the image to fit on a dvd and it will give you an image split into 4.7 gig sections or whatever.
