Yeah; some Static things would go nicely but the rest will all go great. If you've got a Pre-SP1 Windows XP Install you should download SP1 and SP2 from Microsoft Downloads before you build it - I think the time it will take for your computer to be destroyed on a Pre-SP1 PC on the Internet is about 20 minutes; which is less than it will take to download SP1.

Apparently it only takes 20 minutes now on a Pre-SP1 Windows Installation for the Internet to make it useless.
