    I have been writing several documents over the years using word and Windows 95 and 98. Now I have a new Dell with Windows XP Professional and a Dell tech told me that even tho I stored all of my precious documents on zip and copied them onto this new hard drive under a new C;\, I will never be able to access any of my precious documents {including a long book} because XP will not allow it. Anybody know anything about a converter?? thanks, missfuffy,,, heartbroken

    Yes, missfuffy. It's total BS. Actually, you should be able to open your docs just fine.

    Hit File-Open from Word, and browse to the files on your C drive. Double-click one of your files. It should open without ANY problem.
