    i just installed XP Professional SP1, and i noticed that the file directory is "C:Windows", not "C:\Winnt", i couldve sworn i seen xp systems that say c:\winnt, like w2k? any ideas?, or is it me?

    See this link. Evidently some OEMs install WXP to Winnt. I've personally never seen one.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi axis77,

    No XP in general uses the directory c:\Windows.

    EDIT: Unless you have an OEM version like Linda stated above.

    Kind Regards,
