I am thinking of getting a portable PC with Vista loaded. I already have a PC running XP.
Can anyone tell me if there are any problems with WiFi networking when using two different operating systems
Thanks

basically NO. only problem I had was printing from the Vista laptop to a printer connected to the XP machine (which acts a server). Had to mess about with sharing and security. You also have to wait a good while whilst different drivers are downloaded and installed
