    You need not nave bothered with the ME boot disk. XP does it all. Put it in & boot up. Have the cd rom to boot first in the bios.

    How big is that drive??

    Nope it should be OK. You'll see when you boot up with the xp cd anyway what needs to be done. It should see the partitions you made.
