    I just received a computer that has the Linux operating system on it. I would like to put XP on it. Do I just put a Xp boot disk in it and go from there.
    thanks in advance.

    Do you want to have both available, called dual boot?

    If so you will need to install XP onto another hard drive or a separate partition. If no, then re-partition and re-format the hard drive with the XP Setup on the CD.
