I have one Win2k CD that is in good shape for the moment, but I'd like to make a backup just in case-I've tried to copy the thing before but the backup won't install-is there any way to fix that? Also, it's SP4 but for some reason I still have to do a registry hack in order to find and format the remaining space on my 320 Gig WD drive-can I fix that issue as well in the new copy?

You don't normally make a "backup" of a CD, you make an image of it.
Recent thread (only seemingly OT -contains links to commonly used programs to create .iso images):

If you need to modify it, then a "backup" AND a suitable .iso making tool (mkisofs or OSCDIMG) AND a correct command line for any of them is the way to go.
Possibly you could make use of :

You can change your own with the REG entry given (the "hack" you use). (read whole thread, see post #37.)
