you serious?

Anyways, if you forgot to purchase an os, and cant find a friend that has one you could borrow, you should find a pc and download linux or something. Thats only if you dont have windows. If you're gonna go linux, may i suggest fedora core 5 or core 4. But try to find windows.

Buy yourself XP, set the bios to boot from cd and boot from the cd then format the new hdd and install windows. If you have a tecky friend get him to do it for you.
