I'm not sure how it's done on a PC. But you can format the HDD which will erase everything. Then install XP. It probably tells how to in the owners manual. Or you can google it. It isn't very hard to do.

I'm pretty sure you just put the XP disc in and install it. It should guide you.

Yeah the only way is to format the entire drive which will blow everything away, then put on the XP disc and up it's still compatible with the computer.

how about not doing it at all? its a stupid idea and not worth the trouble. I have Windows Vista and I have never had any trouble at all with it, it has security with the OS and you can have your own with your firewall/virus protection. I think its more safer than XP and I think now it has really gotten better as its not so new.

And besides, eventually you will have to use Vista because they'll start making games/applications and whatnot that are only compatible with it. And although it probably wont happen for awhile, they will give up supporting XP altogether.

I don't know if that helps because I can't be bothered to read through it. But if it does here you go.
