Do remember that if you get XP working that it will only work ONCE
with a particular serial number and then often only on that particular MoBo.
a Win XP “restore” disc WILL NOT “install” XP onto a win2000 system.
there IS a 2000-to-XP “upgrade” but it never works as well as a full “clean” install
of win XP, it does have the advantage of USUALLY saving you from reinstalling all
your other software and the exhaustive process of setting everything the way you like it.
