    I currently have a "BELKIN Wireless "G" Router

    240Ghz-802.11g which Microsoft made me disconnect and run Ethernet cable directly to one of my computers.  I have an HP running XP and a Gateway running "Vista" and since I’m not familiar with Vista I elected to hook up my HP with XP on it. I would very much like to put my router back into the system so that I can get familiar with both operating systems.

    I purchased a copy of XP from COMPU Serve, for $98.00, the vista came with my Gateway.

    I have the "BEJKIN" wireless G Router disk and was able to set up, but as soon as I brought the "Vista" machine home and hooked it up Microsoft made me take down my router. I have purchased many other software systems from Microsoft and would like to be able to rum them on any machine that I choose!

    Um, maybe this is too obvious, but how am I supposed to download an application to a computer that can’t connect to a network in the first place?

    You can save it to a disc or USB drive on one machine and run it on the other

    Is there an easy way to view the results?  When I open the XML file it opens in IE, and appears to have formatting instructions in the code but simply shows raw XML code.

    I would like to have a Fix it icon on my desk top!   This is just the greatest. I would gladly give someone a hug.

    First..I understand just enough to get me in trouble on the computer, so what are the risks of using this fix to get rid of dells version and can I do this while I am online and will I have to reconfigure a connection with the new zero config before I can get back online with my cable modem? How will my zone firewall deal with all this?
