    cheers peddant....

    read thru the FAQ's, ... one major prob i don't run SP2 nor do i want to run it. have loaded SP2 once and then reformatted too many un-needed features.
    thanks for the site and the info, I passed on this information to another person that will use it :)

    if anyone else can help in how to disable the (show hidden folders & files option) i would love any more feed back.

    I had a quick look through the FAQs,and as far as I can see it`s OK with XP Pro without SP2.Microsoft say they "recommend SP2",but they always say that about everything.
