    depending on how your booting if your booting from a dos disk then at the A propmt type smartdrv then press enter. If your OS is DOS then edit your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and include this command line C:\SMARTDRV.EXE then save and exit the editor reboot the computer and smart drive will be running, However Microsoft dose not recomend the upgrade path from DOS, it's much better to do a clean install directly from the Windows XP setup disk.
