XP queries

  Fateful Shadow 14:03 11 May 2003

Firstly, thankyou to everyone who posted on my opinion poll for ME. I have convinced the person I've been wanting to convince...my dad!
However, we are thinking of getting XP, and doing a quick upgrade, buut if anything goes wrong, on my head be it, no more using the computer, etc etc.
So, for the sake of the computers health and mine, I need a few more questions answering, and BTW I've looked on the Microsoft website, but no luck!!!

1. Do i keep my peripherals plugged in when I do a quick upgrade?
2. What conflicts am I likely to meet?
3. Should I download new drivers (if any!) before or after installation, or even during?
4. Is it easy to go back to my previous OS (WinME) if anything goes wrong?
5. Do sound cards need drivers?

Me again...one more question

If i do a quick upgrade, will I get any errors from Windows ME or will XP conflict with ME in any way?
