    Question Advice Re: XP Home Pros only please

    I have been gifted with XP Home. In reading the manual I notice that "activation" restricts usage to one computer.

    Question: As this is a Read only CD can I install it on TWO seperate computers and still have the 5 or whatever installs available on each computer?

    I am building a backup system from scratch. This has no OPSYS at present.

    I can do a new install with nothing in the system except XP but will want to load some apps from another system.

    Question: XP says I can create a Wizard Disc to transfer or copy other apps to XP. How does this work. I mean, if what I want to use is larger than 1.4 meg, a floppy won't do. I can burn a CD but is this supported in the XP Wizard stuff?

    Question: How easy is it to have dual boot setup for older opysys such as Win 3.1 for older games and apps and LINUX.

    I plan to use the BU sys mainly for games and graphics. It will be on a DSL Hub.

    Question: Can I use the Wizard via the hub (LAN) with three puters to tranfer apps to the new system?

    If It behaves then I may just load it in my main system. As most of my files etc. are set for FAT32, I know I can change to NTS.

    Question: Will my earlier apps be installable from the CD's. For example Music transcription programs, graphics pad etc.

    Your questions may better be answered if you direct them to some good guru's at in the winXP section.
