First: yes just copy what you want saved to the external harddrive.
Second: There is no use copying the program folder as you cannot move the installed programs. They need to be completely re installed. I would make a completely separate folder called drivers that I downloaded and saved the files from Dell to.
Registry cleaners are nothing more then registry tashers. Its going to happen no matter what. It's only a matter of time. Your just lucky it didnt happen sooner.
Firefox is compatible.
Getting the drivers from dell is as easy as going to dell support and putting in your service tag number and windows version.

Thanks very much Ferrit, great avatar, I had not so much trouble finding the Dell drivers as for trying to install them that's when it all went Sad. Do I need to Download <Microsoft .Net Framework Assistant> and install that before trying to install the Driver's if not good Thanks again Dasha

Installing usually requires you to install in an order. Ordinarily you need the chipset drivers then the video then sound and network and such. But since its a dell and likely an intel I would say absolutely do the chipset first
Here is the dotnet download
It isnt required right away but you will need it eventually.

You just have to copy all your personal data i think. There is no need to copy anything related to windows xp SP3. If you are formatting the whole hard disk then there is no need to copy your C drive. Just make a list of the software that you will be re-installing after the new fresh copy of your windows.
