    You may not have enough memory and/or hard drive space for the setup to run. :?:

    You'd be better of doin' a clean install anyway. ;)

    :hammer: I have found that upgrading from ME to XP just doesn't work for long if at all. Also, XP Pro seems more stable than XP Home.

    My experience with XP has been that it runs much better, 1. when installed as a clean install and 2. XP seems more stable when run on a hard drive that is formatted in nt file format as opposed to leaving the drive in FAT32 format. I do not know why, I only know that after setting up many machines this has been my experiance.

    Hope this helps.

    60 gigs w/ 256 is enough, but you'll be happier if you have 512
