  1. Hi There,

    I'm trying to install a new 80G HD on a older pII 450. I want to install xp but when I get to the "I agree" and press F8 nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    check and see if your keyboard is working at that point in the process generally I have found I cannot do an install with Microsoft keyboards as they dont work at that point in the process so I keep a 10.00 generic keyboard around for installs.
