Question Will your next XP install work ?

Do you have what you need to install XP on a new hardrive ?
Or was it installed on your package PC ?
Like Dell ? Thats a no.
a cd and floppys is a yes.

I spent over 1 and a half grand on this computer, and XP came readily installed. I only have 1 floppy disk as Pacard Bell (the manufacturer) have installed XP on the HD, but they have made it so i cant touch it, and the only thing they gave me to reinstall is 1 floppy disk that is the Recovery Disk
