i`m going to change the MB.my present mb is an M810 which, quite frankly, is garbage. i`m going to go for a p4 mb.my bios is set up to boot from cd. should i put my xp pro disk in when booting or let it startup and see what happens. noticed some people have probs with changing mb`s.

Backup all that you want.

Perform a fresh install of XP - best way!

or let it startup and see what happens - Sure why not.

Not sure about this.I have always understood, that if you change your motherboard, XP could be a problem,to re-install, if it was previously installed via another motherboard set-up.Perhaps someone as further information about this.
