Question about Computers & Internet
It's not very hard actually, at least in my experience. Try booting from the disc, on startup, you go to the BIOS and change the boot sequence, instead of letting the hard drive boot first, you want the CD drive to boot. It'll then ask you to push any button to boot from disc, then Windows will start loading files from the CD, all you need to do then is continue with the installation. Note, you'll probably have to have an empty partition on the hard drive to install the XP in. Following these steps gave us a working dual boot system, if you don't want Vista anymore, you 'd need to format the Vista partition then.

Switching to an older operating system is a nightmare with Windows. They make it nearly impossible. You can try a format command if you can interrupt your windows boot or there may be a way to format it from the "Run" command option. However, my opinion is to pay the crazy 100 bucks or so to have a tech at a computer place do it for you. Windows makes it crazy hard. I did it once a long time ago but it took me weeks to find out how to override windows and partition the drive, etc.
