Hi,
I am considering reinstalling Win XP pro on my Wife's Dell. I have the Dell disk but it's sp2. Can I use a OEM XP pro sp3 disk instead?

Wife's PC-

Dell Dimension 2400
WinXP pro
2 gig ram

What's the "service tag number" on your wife's Dell?

A reinstall of XP Pro probably won't install all the device drivers for her computer, so you want to make sure to have the device drivers burned off to a CD-R before you start.
