    heh nice1... got a good comp there m8!

    hmm... installing XP - the easiest OS to install so far out of the 9x and NT series... just stick in CD it'll auto run (if enabled) select Setup... it'll probably give u one or 2 questions and then install the set up files... then it'll reboot and do most of it itself... will ask u about regional settings, cd key etc... think the final screen is the users... set hem up click reboot and your ROCKING :D

    any problems... well your in the best place with the best ppl helping u :)

  8. Hi mdsalih thx for the reply...as im getting the inspiron 8100 laptop i just want to knw that will it be a problem to upgrade to xp pro..from windows me...will i need to format the hd drive etc etc..thx

    No not really... its better to format if they just give the OS as software...

    If they give u any additional software... they'll either give u the sofware on CD or if minimal on restore disk... you can do it like that...

    But it *is* easier to upgrade... but you might have a problem with compatibility etc... nothing tooo major
