XP install info needed

  Newuser2 19:41 05 Jul 2004

I'm building a new PC & around an asus K8V MBO, an AMD 3400 64 bit CPU etc. I've bought an OEM version of XP with SP1. My concern is how should I install XP re the file system re NTFS or FATS. I have apps that I need to put on the new PC which at the moment on the old PC which is running ME.
I understand that when I install XP it will partition the new HD as part of the install process.
Any help will be most welcome.

Best if you partition the hdd yourself first of all if you are going for a dual boot (keeing win ME).

Then install XP onto a second partition, using the advanced option to tell it to go onto the relelvant partition.

Sorry, misread...

Stick with NTFS on the new machine if you are using XP. Anything that works on ME should likely work on XP.
