XP install in place of ME


I want to install XP on my C: drive which now has WinME.

I was told that XP would re-format C: but instead it gives me a warning that I already have an OS on C: and that XP may not function properly.

There is also an option to delete C: partition and create a new one.

I am running Partition Magic and have ME on C:, Data on D:, NTFS on E:, Win2k on F: and so on......

Will XP use the same size partition? If not I'm afraid it would mess up the rest of my partitions.

Another question:
Can I use a Startup disk, format c: and then find the Setup file on the XP CD?

Thats an interesting idea.

Can you install XP with FAT32 or NTFS?

Any down side to NTFS. I want to be able to interact w/ my other partitions?

You can install in on FAT 32 (xp that is) then be able to share and see with no problems at all.
