    Transferring programs without transferring the OS can be a problem.

    You might consider making a ghost of your C drive and install it on your new computer. Then you could upgrade to XP saving your settings. Might be a problem converting to NTFS if you do that, but XP will also evidently let you use FAT32.

    Your best bet by far is just to reinstall your programs once you get XP up and running.
