But the following from Microsoft contradicts this.
Look at method 2.
Welcome to the world of computers.
You are aware that a clean install is better than a upgrade anyways, so if starting with XP and pointing to 2000 works, then it will actually be better than a full install of 2000 and then the upgrade.

i don't have the computer with me, but tomorrow I'll try it, and write how it goes. I hope it works. Just out of curiosity, is it normally this confusing when building a computer?
I mean, don't get me wrong, i love having problems, because i get to learn to fix them, but is it normally this challenging?

although, i must admit, i was expecting it to be alittle bit faster, but i think it just because it hasn't built those temporary files yet...

How much ram do you have?
What size are the hard drives?
Are the drives 5400rpm or 7200rpm? Because I just ran in to a 5400rpm drive. Haven't seen 1 of those in a while for a desktop 3 1/2 inch.

Hard Drive- 20GB i plan to buy a new SATA one soon, where as this one is IDE. I dont know how fast it spins, but its pretty old, so id say 5400...
oh, and if my processor is AMD Atholon 64 x2, when my bios update asks what kind of OS i run, is it WinXP, or WinXP64bit ?

For the hard drive, if you have the make and model, you can go to the site and do a search. It will give you the info on the drive. I do that numerous times.
5400 spins slower than 7200 (I am sure you are aware of that)
