The information I have with the computer is that I don't need them. However if something happens to my hard drive, I won't have the recovery partition that Leonovo describes.
I have read on these forums that it is important that I make "One time" recovery discs for my computer but I can't find instructions in the documentation about how to make the discs. Help please!

Thank you Andy.
When I read those FAQs before they seemed to be addressing replacing Vista with XP so I skipped over them. The operating system on my computer is already XP Pro.
Now I have attempted to follow these instructions:
I may have messed up. The instructions said I would have to use 1 CD disc and one DVD disc or 8 CD discs. In the end I had used no CD disc and three DVD discs. ThinkVantage says the recovery disc making was a success and as instructed I tried to begin at step one again. ThinkVantage said that I had already made the discs. I kept thinking that ThinkVantage would tell me when to put in the CD disc.
Without a CD disc included, do I have a useable set of recovery discs?

The first disc is usually a CD but it it will boot to the DVD you are fine. Usually the other discs are 2 DVD's or 8 CD's.
As long as you can boot to the first disc you are OK, if not you may have to make a :Recovery media" disc with a CD. It is the same disc as the first one in the recovery set. It is a Thinkvantage Rescue and Recovery boot disc.

Thank you carbon_unit.
How can I make a "Recovery media disc with a cd"? Is that part of ThinkVantage?
