Thank you very muchI used your guide and worked perfectly .
One note for you that are novices like me is before you do this go to Dell's website and look up your device drivers and burn them to a disk b/c when I reloaded winxp Dellcd did not have all of my drivers on it. "I think when you buy a Dell now you can get the full back up cd with all on it". This meant I couldnt use my ethernet or wifi drivers. I was lucky enough to have another computer on hand downloaded them and put on. Got internet going and downloaded the rest. I made sure since I plan on doing this more regulary so I burned almost all my drivers to a disk. Next time instead a few hours it shouldnt take me more than a hour.
