Man, I Always Wondered The Same, LOL.  if You Run Into Problems, You Could Always Just Put It On A CD Like It Comes From The Factory, Ya know.  That Might Help If The Regular Install Off The Hard Drive Doesn't Work.

if you have a cd burner, burn the "iso" to a cd .... if not, download isobuster or winiso and extract the files to a directory and install ...

yea this is wht i did, i didn't d/l it tho, jus burned a copy and cracked it

Rite if u run it widin windows, it mite giv u an error message sayin sum dll file is fucked etc ... theres nuthin wrong wid da cd
the prob is, it wont install over the windows ure using or sumthin (if u dont get an error message, ignore this)

So wht i did wuz, formattted the comp, throu dos (make sure u gotta start up disk) and booted from the winXP CD ...

If u get the error message, dont do anything, post a reply sayin u got it ... cuz booting from the cd has to be enabled from the BIOS etc ...

1) Burn the setup on to a cd
2) Run it from windows
thats it ...........

IF HOWEVER YOU GET AN ERROR MESSAGE:
dont worry, theres nuthin wrong with the cd .... u just have to format the hard disk blah blah, i wont confuse u yet, so if u get the error message, then dont go any further, i'll tell u wht to do then

Um yeah, Windows ME can be  A BITCH, espically if u keep installin n uninstallin shit, if ure a gamer and a multitasker, and incounter errors n crap, then upgrade...

WinME is good for home, novice users, cuz its user friendly, and umm yea ...

But peeps like me, tweakers/gamers/multitaskers etc ... need the stabilty of Windows NT and Win2k ...AND the gaming and user friendlyness of WinME/Windows 98 SE ...

WinXP is the 'total package' its really stable, ure progs never freeze on it, ure computer will always run smooth AND u dont need to install drivers n shit for new hardware etc, cuz WindowsXP has it all built in ...

So yea windows XP is the best OS MicroSoft has ever released, upgrade if you want to, if you dont wanna take the hassel, and r fine wid ure current OS, chill, no need to upgrade ;)
