can anyone explain or link me as to how to do this via internet/lan ?
if you go this route, install window me then upgrade to xp.
put it in another computer, make 2 partition with your xp cd, format the 2nd as fat32 (it will format the first drive first, you can pick ntfs for that one) and install me on that 2nd one. as soon as it get done formatting and say checking drive, immediately eject the xp disc. it will say something like it can't continue. hit f3 to restart. install me
put it back. me will load if you put the hdd on a 1000 different computers. now after a few reboots and it load the new drivers. copy the content of your xp cd onto the 2nd me partition, through either the usb cd or network
run setup from there. pick new install. enter serial then pick next. clcik advance option check the copy the install file and the I want to pick the partitions options.
during reboot pick the 1st partition to install xp
delete the me partition when you are done. you can change to my document folder.
I done this on a ipaq before as well as a few other computers
