I'm glad to find such a cool place, where us "noobies" can find some help. After all this is my first post. I have a small, yet annoying problem concerning Windows XP Home Edition. Let me start out by telling you some 'bout my current gaming setup.
AMD 64 bit 3200
1 GB Corrsiar RAM
DFI LanParty UT nF4 Ultra-D Motherbored
x850xt Radeon VC
160 GB Maxxtor HD
As you can tell it's pretty sweet. But after I set it up, and installed Windows XP Home Edition, and booted it up, the windows loading screen poped up and then went to the BSOD (Blue-Screen-Of Death-Screen) and displayed this funky error message:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ***STOP: 0x0000000A ***STOP: 0x0000000A was followed by (0x00000020, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8051E17D just for further reference.)
It appears WXPHE does not work on this machine, so I tried to install Linux Fedora Core, and it worked, so it sounds/looks like a driver issue. I'm geussing that maytbe it's a motherbored/BIOS problem.
After this, I lended my computer parts over to my freind (a pretty knowlageable geek himself) and he tried downloading Windows XP Proffesional, and it worked, but when he tried to install SP2, it crashed and went into a "infinite state of rebooting itself". So were stumped. Since I've allready spent well over 2k on this beast, I don't want to buy another O.S. for it, since I allready have a legal version off Windows XP, that seems not to work on my computer, un-like his questionably-obtained verison of XP pro.
I'm really begging you all to state your thought's I'm going crazy. You can all contact me at:

Thank you all so much for reading thru this maze of technical blabber.
