  1. Yea...I need to up grade to XP and have never put windows on a computer. Is it easy? Will it erase my HD? and lastly, will it get rid of the crappy ME?

    yes, if you upgrade to XP you won't have ME anymore.

    you can choose to do a fresh install or an upgrade. upgrades normally don't work that well, but mine is an upgrade from win98 and works fine. if you upgrade, you keep all your stuff.

    it's something that, if you are a pretty smart person with computers and good at following directions, should go off without a hitch. but backup anything you'd care if you lost regardless of what you do.
