nope...its a linux operating system...it will run from the cd drive and will automatically connect to the internet using your hardware...then you just surf around on the internet and if you still have slowdowns then you will know its not windows causing the slowdown...it is their equipment...

Guys i mess up some where big time last night ... when i tryed to burn the image on the DVD-RW my pc started to freez so i lost my minde trying and i went directly to reinstaling win .. i did folow all the steps and what happened that when it allmost instaled win it went in to loop whright there when the setup restarts so every time setup has restatrted it went back and insaled and restarted again and again ... no mater what i tryed to get back in i just allways got a black screen :)
So because i didnt want to format yet i instaled win with out formating just a fresh copy next to the win that are allready on so i will be able to copy the stuf i need and then just format the HD completly and start ower again :) i was busting my head with it till 4am last night so i guess i can format it since i messed up every thing allready :)

Tooday i hope that my friend will bring me another modem i hope he dont forget so i will be able to test it and in 4h i will start formating and instal every thing back on from scratch . So if you guys have any sugjestion what to instal and what not please tell me :) i can tell you exactly what are my sys spec and what motherboard i have and of course you allready know about my XPs that its a copy . I am considering to buy an original but wright nou im broke and they are not cheap .

So the plan is to instal : win , antivirus , drivers for motherboard , graphic card drivers , SP1 and SP2 maybe i will skip Sp3 " mabe there was the problem " ...
if any more ideas please post them if not ill see you when im done with all this and we will go from there :)

Correct installation steps are
OS
Motherboard Chipset drivers
Graphics Card
Internet
Anti Virus
Then do all the updates.

The connection will be setup during the OS installation.
I think I got that one out of place. Before going on internet make sure AV is installed then do all the updates.
