You should get a long list of things. Look for Windows in that list. If not on the first screen, press the down arrow key for the rest of the list. Let me know what you find.

Take the floppy and cd out of their respective drives.
Choose the nearliest one (1-18-06) and press "Enter"

Microsoft Windows XP professional setup
Cancel Windows XP setup
Past experience If I chose 1 I would get the blue screen error saying that stuff about the bios shadowing, memory etc. and stop with a bunch of numbers.
So I would choose Cancel Windows Setup and it would take me to Windows Me startup and boot up fine in ME
Which one should I choose this time?

Once you have done that, put the Windows XP disk in the cd-rom drive and restart your machine.
Then we'll go step by step through the rest.

Restart with the floppy (startup disk) in the drive and the ME disk in the cd-rom...the top one (I hope this is the right one)
Type 1 and press "Enter"
At the A:\ prompt, type F:setup and press "Enter"
Let me know if this starts the installation...
