I Want to install a full version of XP over another installed version and
the end result I want is that the new version and its serial number and
activation are the only ones left ........If I use the repair installation
utility of the new full version will this do the trick? Obviously I want the
repairing version to be my only installed version.....My reasons honest and
honorable......JGM

To do a clean install boot the Windows XP install CD-Rom. When you get to
the point, delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions found. After you
delete the partition(s) abort the install, then again restart the pc booting
the CD-Rom to avoid unexpected drive letter assignments with your new
install.

Be sure to apply SP2 or at least these to your new install before connecting
to any network.
