XP Installation worries

  _Treb_ 16:16 13 May 2003

Hi all, a friend of mine wants to get Windows XP, however, a little birdie aka my brother in law tells me that he will need to register XP online. Here's the snag, my friend doesn't have or want internet access and I have no experience with XP. I do know that he will probably need new drivers and guess who will be downloading those on Dial Up? Your thoughts and advice please.

You can register XP by phone.

Good new being that XP has a larger driver database,and might install most of the devices in first tim after installation.So in that respect you will be alright.
But XP will defo have to be activated for XP installation to got through.
