How to back up FAT32 partition used by BootCamp?

I used BootCamp to install Windows XP in a 7 GB FAT32 partition on my MacBook hard drive. However, I can't get SuperDuper! to recognize that partition, so it appears not to be possible to back it up using SD.

The WinXP partition is readable/viewable from the MacOSX side, so in theory at least, it seems there ought to be a way to copy that data to an external partition in a way that could serve as a restorable (if not necessarily bootable) backup, but maybe SD can't do it?

Any suggestions? I realize that I could probably install a different backup program on the WinXP side and run the backup when booted to XP, but I've never been terribly happy with the Win-compatible programs I've seen. By comparison, SuperDuper is a dream.
