how to save a game before nuking the comp

The comp is about to blow up, and I need to save my progress on NFS UG and UG2 as well as HP2. HOw would I go about saving these games to the other hardrive before I erase the main one and re load everything again?

It's "about to blow up."

WTF does this mean.

YOu'd have to figure out where the saved games reside... Some games put them in a subfolder of the game directory. Rollercoaster tycoon, for example, has a "savegame" folder in the games main folder. Halo makes a "My Games" folder in the "My Documents" folder.

Once you figure out where the saved games are, copy them to another hard drive, CD, or whatever, and after you reload Winblowz and the games, copy the saved games into the same folders they where in originally.
