yeah i remember when i first used DOS, infact it was windows 3.1 and i had no computer knowledge what so ever and no internet to seek help from. using windows back then was not that user friendly so i had to play with things and work it out for myself. buggered up my mums computer so much and so often that she grounded me for 2 months once. the actual grounding was until i fixed it but i needed to go out and get help which she couldnt see until 2 months of me mopping around the house had passed.

raffaz how do you install of a network drive? i use my other computers dvd drive to install stuff inside windows xp could i do it that way on boot up?
