First, Hello everybody.
I have an old laptop that I can not 'restore' with the WinXP cd.
Seems the loaded XP is newer than the cd that came with it.
Since it was almost toast I tried anyway and the product code is invalid.
I want to load ubuntu (cd on its way from on-disk.com) and I want to know if I need to re-format or will running install with the ubuntu cd just overwrite the XP?
I made a MSDOS boot disk on my desktop (also XP) but I can't remember how to get from the A promp to the C prompt and then the command(s) to reformat C.
Any point in the right direction would be appreciated.
