    for some weird reason, whenever i try to download and install windows xp sp1 it dosn't install. it just downloads it and then i see like 3 screens. the last one being something about archiving. and then the installation process just closes. is there any way that i can get past this and make it install?

    Hmmm, odd. Try telling it to NOT back up your current config. I assume you're smart enough to make sure you have enough free space on the drive to install it and to have nothing running...
