You don't back up the OS. You can use BlackBerry Desktop Manager's backup feature to back up your data and settings.

Desktop Manager should have come on a CD along with your BlackBerry.

The OS is the Operating System.
It's the software code that makes your BlackBerry a BlackBerry.

Just back up your BB when you're done fiddling with it, so when all your info is gone, or you "hurt" your BB ;-D. You may just restore it to the preferences of that of your back up! =]
