Does anybody know how to get into the system restore discs that I just made from my Compaq S3000nx? I just want to install Windows xp from an OEM disc (Microsoft) and then use the drivers from the Compaq Discs.I don't want all of that other programing cluttering up my computer. Is this possible?

The xp cd should already have the drivers for it. Compaq uses intel chipsets so a clean install shouldnt be a problem.
I think he means that he doesn't want all the Compaq bloat that comes with a Compaq computer.
You can probably get all the files that you need off of your computer right now, and burn them to cd. This might help:
