Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Not sure what anyone else thinks, but I'd NEVER upgrade an operating system...always start fresh.
You'll need to back up what she needs to save, then wipe the hard drive and install XP. I think the XP install disk will walk you through formatting the disk before installation.
But honestly, if you upgrade, you probably will run into funky errors down the road.
