    I had one of these laptops given to me.. I tried to re-install winxp but it takes a real long time to format the drive (thinking there's a problem with the HD). Once it's done formating, winxp starts installing, then is unable to copy certain files to HD and the installation fails. Also tried Win98 and that fails also. I'm thinking of changing the HD in this laptop and i'm just wondering how big of a HD I could put in.. Anyone have one of these and know anything about them?
