    Would anyone here have any idea why our son can't install XP pro on his computer? It just doesn't seem to want to work. He has previously been using 98 and we are connected to the internet via a cable modem and now are computers have a router so that Sam can also have internet access.
    Any ideas would be gratefully received,

    Thank you

    Sheila

    128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

    In addition.

    Error messages?

    Point of failure (how far does setup get before it fails)?
