When I try to install xp on a NEW computer that has NO prior MSDos type installation(MAC) I am prompted to put in disk from earlier insallatioon? I have a fresh disk, a new winxp 1st time install disk.Iteven says "For people who have NO OS at all or cant upgrade for some reason. It doesnt require a previous version of windows. YET..it hangs up at that dreaded question eachtime. What am I doing wrong? And dont say. you got a mac. I have had a dozen ms OS and Linux as well. I am ready to shed those viruses. Be that as it may, I have a brand new Office 2003 that I wanna run, and otherwise I will have to buy it.
