Try start/programs/accessories/system tools:

Backup.

I'm using XP pro...and it's there, but I dunno for sure that it's on home edition.

You have to add it from the CD - this page has instructions.

(make sure you copy and paste the whole link, including the final number).
=======
To manually install Backup:
Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file in the following location on the Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM to start a wizard that installs Backup:
CD-ROM Drive:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP

When the wizard is complete, click Finish.
