just boot from your xp cd and you will be fine. The cd will give you all the option you need to format you pc and reinstall xp.

id use the link Allan gave you above.

As for not having startup disks... your system should support booting from the CDROM you have.

You dont need other software for the installation of Windows itself... but you may need drivers for your hardware (depending on the age of the hardware depends on whether XP will support them automatically or not). You'll also need the software installation cds for the other software you use on the system such as Microsoft Office etc

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
