XP is nice and I use it frequently, but I think it might be time for you to get a Powerbook.
Whenever I reinstall a windows machine, I ALWAYS fdisk the harddrive, to make sure that it is completely clean.
We have also learned from experience here at the office to put certain installers on CDR so that we can install them before getting on the network, especially the all important ZoneAlarm.
FDISK > InstallXP > Install Norton > Install ZoneAlarm > Get updated.
How do I go about cleaning the disk completely. Please help I have all my CD for XP, Zone and Norton. Thanks

If you ever need to format your hard drive the windows xp setup will do it for you when you go to reinstall in on your hard drive. You can choose to do a quick format or to just reformat the hard drive which this will take longer. You will have to use NTFS file system on the hard drive because that is what windows xp operates on.
Guys, thanks for all the Windows tips. I’m sure they’ll come in handy one day, if I ever decide to use a Windows machine again. Also, when monkeys fly out of my butt.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
