    i just installed windows xp on my laptop (came with vista). my intention was to be able to dual boot but it automatically chooses xp at startup, not giving me any option. this wouldn't be a big deal if i could access the internet because vista is terrible. i've got an acer extensa 5420 with an amd turion64 x2 mobile processor. i've installed the drivers for the turion and just can't get on the internet. it's not picking up wireless networks, or anything. anybody know what to do?

    While I like XP also Vista does work on the Internet. Some people are having issues with it but post a message here and someone can help you with Vista. Is your Vista on the Hard drive or on CD?
