    Or, even better, check XP-Erience Download section. They have an XP Boot Disk download.

    Aren't the files on the floppy disks the same as on the xp cd when you boot from it anyway? What is the difference?

    Differences are:

    A.) Some people's systems are unable to boot off the CD

    and/or

    B.) The disks take a helluva lot longer to load

    uhmm....well...not quite ya see...lol...

    I can't boot off the CD, purely because there is something wrong with my CD-ROM, whether it's becuz it's 3 years old or broken etc, but I am unable to boot off the CD, maybe because it's *cough* burned *cough* copy of XP disc...anyway lol...I guess there's only 1 problem except for me lol

    Single Boot Disk

    FYI: There is a single boot disk to install ANY windows operating system (except NT) at:

    http://www.pchelplive.com

    Works great even for W2000 Advanced Server and XP Pro!
