Will Dell send one, or it is best just
to download all the files from their site,
and burn one's own.

Thanks,

I would download and burn my own.
It is also faster to install from the downloaded files than
the resource cd. You may want to rename the files
when you download them so you can tell what they are (ie
rename R1187.exe to audio_r1187.exe for example).

Why would anyone but a computer that does not come with a full
operating system disk???? You paid for the OS, you should get what
you paid for. If Dell will not send a disk than make hem take the
computer back and refund your money.

It came with the full OEM XP-Pro-SP2. IT did not come
with a disk with hardware specific drivers.

I had the same thing happen with a Dimension 8400 I recently took delivery
on. I did both.

I don't mind making my own disc but figured I should get what I paid for as
well. I always make copies of the factory discs anyway.

Forget calling. I emailed support on the 11th. Airborne delivered the disc
on the 17th.

I recently purchased a Dimension 8400 which came with a Resource/Drivers CD.

If you check the website, you'll find most of the drivers on the CD have
been updated anyway, so you're better off burning your own.
