    For those of us that are moving towards a time where XP is only used for games, this could be huge!

    ive heard about that and actually wanted to try it just for that fact. i wish they would just make a ISO we can download and install, oops nm that might be illegal. Since you got a ton of free time mateo you do it and report back.

    lol
    that sounds like a good idea trooper.

        i dint see where it ever says how big it would need to be to install. Im guessing you would need a 5-8 gig drive to work. Then i could just install all my apps right on to that, which would just be games...lol

        Drive

        but i think that would work

          I'm not sure about XP, but I have gotten a very cut down copy of redhat to boot off of a USB pen. Mind you I had 32meg to work with..
          but concidering today's pens get upto 2gig. you shoudl easily be able to do it

          write a command to create a ram drive, and tell the computer to use a disposable file on a different drive for the page file, ntloader and a few of the other important one's adn you'll be fine.

          but, why are we doing this again?

              Because it's cool.
