Default New notebook but dislike vista please help

Hi I'm new to the forum so I'll start by saying hello
I just purchased this notebook from Tiger direct
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...UcTdJeAn_t3HNg

Sorry for the newbie question but is it possible to install windows xp pro on this notebook? Any tips on how I can do this easily?
Would I have to format the hdd and such or just run the xp pro disk?

Installing XP OS on your laptop isn't the problem.

You have to find out if Asus have made XP drivers for the hardware.

If they have then your good to go. But I stuggled to find XP Pro drivers for your laptop.
