It backs up everything -- EVERYTHING -- on your boot drive.

There's no "how-to" because there's no "how."

You don't do anything apart from connect an external drive to your  
Mac, tell Time Machine (when it asks) that you want to use that drive  
for your Time Machine backups, and ... there's no step three. TM will  
make a backup of the entire drive (it takes a while, the first time)  
and then after that will update the drive hourly with any new info  
you've put on it. You don't need to do anything.
