**** You Microsoft

After a year's worth of trouble I decided to wipe the hard drive and reinstall XP.

It stops installing at "32 minutes left" when it's supposedly "installing network."

What. the. fuck. there is nothing I can do.

What error message does it give you? And are there scratches on your disc?

they can mail you a replacement cd with sp2 and all the updates built in for a small fee (like $5 i think). or you can always just download the very same thing. i don't see how it's microsoft's fault that your disc is scratched.

I've tried 2 pro discs and a home disc.

two of these were official.

It isn't the disc, it's the suck software.

well, I fixed and installed it. I just selected "default failsafe options" in the BIOS.

Just need sound drivers and I'm set. Thanks for your input, guys~
