     :That's not totally true! :-O  If he installs over the 
     :current OS, he 
     :will have to re-install all the programs previously 
     :installed. Now if 
     :we're talking data such as letters, Doc's, spreadsheets 
     :and the such. 
     :No, that won't be lost, but what I would highly recommend 
     :is, to backup 
     :all the data you wish to keep, wipe the drive clean and 
     :do a clean 
     :install of XP when he aquires XP cd.
