Nice job but just to tell you you don't have to reinstall xp everytime you add ram.

Good Grief! You left one install on for 4yrs.! I can imagine all of the accumilated crud in the registry itself let alone all over the drive!

(there's no better feeling then a fresh clean install of Windows. )

That's why there's a files and settings transfer wizard for creating backups. Once the fresh copy is on you simply import a backup. Of course that's known as the slow ketchup there.

The simple solution is regular backups at all times in case Windows gets foobarred, you reinstall for a dual or multi boot, or even a worst case drive crash where everything is safe elsewhere already. I think cbtech73 had already thought of those things there prior to proceeding however.
