Anyhow, if it don't work this time, I'm gonna' grab Vista later today. If it does work- I'll save me about $265!

Thanks again for all your help!
you do know you can slipstream SP2 into your copy of xp?

just google nlite, and use it, its very easy. installing pre-sp1 xp on brand new hardware is NOT a good idea.
