Recently I upgraded from win98 to XP Pro. Now, Norton's Anti-virus 2003 needs to be reinstalled--according to Symantec--to be compatible with XP Pro.

The upgraded pc is currently connected to the Internet using DSL. Due to logistics, I will be connecting that pc to the Internet using cable modem.

The question is this: will the DSL-based pc work okay with my cable-modem connection w/o having to go through a cable-modem setup on the pc? I will need Internet connectivity as I will want to download any virus updates from Symantec once the reinstall process is completed.

all you do with XP pro is use the new connection wizard and it will make the connection for you, all you do is plug in your hardware and select your options, should work fine <_<
