It's really simple, and XP is my favorite. Buy the software, follow the instructions -- it does all the work for you!

If your computer is older, you might need more RAM or memory, however. Be sure to bring all the info re: your computer to the store, so they can tell you if it will hold XP.

XP needs at least 256mb ram to run ok. 512mb ram to run smoothly. If you bought the computer in 2000, it may cost almost as much to buy a new pc with XP on it, instead of trying to upgrade.
