Need help upgrading 3rd home computer from 2000 to XP



We have 3 computers in our home. Two of the computers we have had for a year
and both are running xp pro with sp2. the new computer came with 2000 pro. i
want to upgrade the new one to xp. how can i do this without the installation
disks from the first two computers? can i just transfer files over the
network and then install xp pro on the 3rd computer? someone help please :)
thanks in advance-christy

Hello Christy,

IF!!! you have a 3rd LICENSE!!! for XP, save the data from the 2000 machine
if necessary, create an image from one of the XP machines, install the image
on the 2000 machine, run sysprep from MS and copy back your files to the
now XP machine.

Best regards
