Well I'm getting ready to redo my computer with a fresh install of XP and then an update to SP2 on my Dell Dimension 8300. I'm doing this after web update of SP2 trashed my system, I'm getting by with a repair install of XP. Anyways what’s the best way to backup current user info? Can I just copy of the username file folder under Documents and Settings to an extra HD and the put them back once finished with my fresh install? Are there better ways? Can I copy the whole folder over or are their folders or info that might mess up new user accounts on the fresh instillation? Any info on slipstreaming my XP cd? Has anyone had any luck? New drivers? Programs that can install by themselves with XP? Can I get Office 2000 Pro to install with windows? Also how should I set my hard dive up? I’m looking for the easiest way to keep data organized and easy to use, and easy to recover if disaster strikes again. Thanks for the input. Any links to guides our or own ideas would be greatly appreciated!
