  1. Hi sorry really dumb question, but im tired off searching.

    My last hard drives failed on me so i need to get new ones but heard xp sp2 has a limit on harddrive space? looking at getting two 1TB Samsung HD103SJ. Has anyone else had problems with these cos i usually get western digital and will 2TB be okay with OS. Also had a WIFI ariel on my ASUS board (PW5DH) but my daughter snapped the ariel (ggrrr) does anyone know if the connection plug is universal was looking at getting an Edimax EA-IO7D. Any answers please keep simple, I'm still kinda knew to all this

    Thanks for any help and advice

    Hi brokenpc,

    Almost all WiFi antennae have a standard connection on them. It should just unscrew.

    As for drive size, from what I remember the 32 bit version of WinXP can handle drives up to 2GB with no workarounds, larger drives with some tinkering.
