    Hi again, brabra70,

    This link will take you to the Microsoft website, where you will be able to download a program which will create a set of bootup disks for Windows XP Pro.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...db-5039-4955-bcb7-4fed408ea73f&DisplayLang=en

    You will need SIX blank floppy disks. ALL data on the disks will be DESTROYED, so I urge you to start with NEW disks.

    The program is named "WinXP_EN_PRO_BF.EXE", which "translates" into "Windows XP Professional Bootup Floppies, in English".

    When you download the program, save it onto the Windows Desktop. When the download finishes, double-click the icon it has created on the Desktop, and it will instruct you to begin by installing a floppy disk into the floppy disk drive, and it will tell you when to REMOVE the disk, and insert a new disk.

    Good luck; post here again if you have any questions.
