If you are missing your XP disk, you could borrow one from someone else, or look on eBay. If you happen to have a Dell machine, I know that the XP install disks for Dell are commonly sold fairly cheaply on eBay.

    You don't need an XP disc to do a system restore.

I have a IBM thinkcenter 8123 model. I can't install lan due to lac of suitable driver! pls help me!


Go into the bios on your computer and shut down the onboard LAN, find a 3com or realtek LAN card and install it, windows has the drivers build in for most 3com cards, then you go to IBM site, download the drivers you need for the onboard LAN connection, remove the 3com card let the computer boot up, and when it asks for the driver point it to where you downloaded the drivers for the onboard LAN.

Assuming you have SP 3 on 2000, it's possible the USB ports are bad.  Try a different USB device ie mouse, flash drive etc to verify whether the USB port is bad.  If this is the case, you can either purchase a USB 2.0 card and install it on your PC or run without USB ports.
