Hi Patti,
I read your reply to rontay re: removing the old os after installing XP. If
I follow your instructions and reply "yes", then I won't be able to uninstall
XP in the future -- is this correct? Also, in removing the old operating
system, will I lose any files? I'm functioning properly in XP, but would
like to free up used space on my hard drive.
Thanks
