Concerning the OS, MAKE SURE its not like... Windows XP _UPGRADE_. I thought I had the OS until I saw it was upgrade only. Went looking for a full version but... damn, 200 bucks for full xp pro at circuit city... 150 for full xp home... i think. HARD as HELL to find a copy of windows 98 or something other than xp. Finally found a reinstallation disc of cp from my bro and used it to install my xp upgrade. Thought I'd say this.... incase.. ya know...
