Please don't think I'm being facetious but the kindest thing you could do to that computer would be to treat it to a Linux Operating System instead of ME. Chances are it has too limited resources to run XP and if it could, XP is expensive, even now. A Linux system would recognise all the hardware, including your new wireless adapter, and you'd soon get used to the system. It will do all the things Windows can do and in some cases, better. You won't need to worry about an anti-virus or a firewall and there are programmes and utilities for everything and it's all free of charge,although donations are welcomed.

Use the computer you're on now to download the Minime version of PCLinuxOS from http://www.pclinuxos.com and then burn it to a CD using ImgBurn or similar. Run it in the other machine as a LiveCD without installing it to see if you like it and install it when you're ready.
