I'm about to replace my hard disk and will install XP Pro. I've been told not to bother with SP1 as it will "do nasty things to your machine". Surely there's no alternative to downloading it? Also previously with 98se I've backed up emails etc by copying the whole of C/Windows/Application Data to a second HD then after a format I've copied the appropriate bits back. Will this work OK with XP?
Thanks guys. I thought the advice on SP1 sounded a bit misplaced and I'm relieved to hear that the rmail side of things should go OK. I'll still have the old HD with W98 on it available if there are any problems. thanks again
