Use a backup program such as True Image to make copies of the disk partitions to an external drive. If you need to replace the system drive, just pop the TI recovery disk in the CD/DVD drive and restore everything from the external drive. It typically takes less than an hour. Backups can be automated or done manually. I do mine before installing MS updates every month and before installing/updating any major software packages.

Presumably, the CDs you made are a replacement for the d: partition. The d: partition, like you suggest, won't be much help if the HDD fails.
When you consider XP uses less than one CD and you had to make more than one, I think this is a safe assumption.
