PS I am running W/ME on an intel MOBO I forgot to say that concerning my issues with Gforce# video card question… Also I am thinking of doing the XP upgrade any one done it yet and are you happy or am I setting myself up for sorrow ? Should I stivck with ME and what for a while before migrating to W/XP…

I think you should install winXP into another drive

some people say its really crap but others say its good…but I like it!

Yep, some people like it, some don’t… my advice is this:
wait for a service pack to come out for XP, then upgrade, until then, stick with ME.
