No difference between installing XP and 2k from scratch. If you're installing XP, then get XP Pro. If you've got the home version then :lol:.

"get Win XP..2000 is crap " Yes, that's right... and you base these wild accusations on what experience??

XP shud really only be put on from scratch, runs on NTFS where as 98 ME etc run on FAT32 system. When u convert/upgrade it alters the file system to NTFS and this can wreck the HD as it did for a mate of mine. Really u need to format the HD in NTFS style using the XP cd as the startup, should work fine then with everthin when you load drivers back on! Have fun! :)
