    Im going to buy XP Pro for an empty hard drive, I was just wondering these days how you go about installing it?

    Im guessing it might be boot from CD? and they give you the boot disk in the box... But I dont really have a clue. Ive been using floppy disks when my comp falls appart, ive still got my old floppy drive from the very first computer we got (Some old fujitsu, it had that strange animal thing on it, it was like a flying dolphin)... My sister baught Catz and I baught Dogz, man my dogz would beat the shiz outa her catz, but im just jabbering.

    You can install XP Pro straight from the CD, no "Boot Disk" required.

    Yep, just stick the CD in the drive and reboot. You will then be asked to press any key to boot from CD... :)
