Default Media Center PC

Hi everybody, i just finished building my DIY Media Center PC. It has a P3 800mhz, 384mb Ram, 20gb Ram, Riva TNT 2 with TV out. It has XP on it and it works very well playing movies and such. Is there a program or os that will play movies, has a good gui suited for a TV and should be able to network so i can transfer media files from computer to media center pc.

A program should sit nicely on top of Windows and give it nice big readable text and images.

An os should have all the functions of video playback, divx, mp3, networking etc.

Thanks.
Wayne

XPize check this out. It is a app that you install and it looks and runs like MCE. So you should be able to do what you want with it and have it look like a MCE PC.
