    I think I will install XP on my test rig, which is 98, and run along side Win2K.

    Will be the easiest way for me to see the difference and check all the compatibility issues out first.

    Know where did I put *cough* my XP CD ;)

    Yeah I think you're right Phil - I'm on an xp/me dual boot on sep hdd's and I think I had to set it up that way... it was a while ago now so I might be wrong though :D New SB drivers now though so I'm going to reinstall soon (the college network took over my last install), maybe I'll check when I do? :D

    Cheers,

    I can get a full version of XP proffesional for £125 OEM, good price or should I hold out a bit longer?

    I think the price should drop a bit more, early next year.

    What are your thoughts.

    I dont think you can get a upgrade version of professional.

    As for £120 for the OEM its a pretty good price, I personally would not spend that after all my copy XP coast me £1 ;)
