I have XP Pro w/SP3 fully patched.
I want to make a bootable disc with Windows 7 on it so that I can install it on a spare hard drive.
I'm hoping to download W 7 directly to the disc, if that's feasible.
I've never done this before and am completely clueless.
Also, free would be nice but is not necessary.
Thank you.

If that download will come as .iso file, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.c...hp?act=download, and it'll create bootable Cd for you.
