My daughter finally got winxp loading back up from dos but the files started loading last night and this morning it said 85 files loaded and it wasn't finished..now I was reading that if you don't use smart drive that it will be a long install but is this how long it should be? how many files need to be loaded before it wants to restart?

I've installed XP on some pretty slow machines and it's never taken longer than an hour.

How are you installing it? From CD? Cabs? Is it a clean install or are you trying to reinstall over the top of an existing OS?
