Thanks guys. With the Toshiba, it only comes w/ a "recovery" disk that has Vista and all the other junk software on it. I'm having a hard time getting everything off now, it's really buggering up my machine and slowing it down. Any ideas to get it "clean"? I would like to just have the Vista OS and start clean w/ it.

Nothing that I know of. You'll just have to take some time and go through the Add/Remove programs list and take everything off. Then you can use Ghost to make an image at that point so you'll have your own recovery disk. At least you'll only have to do it once that way.
