uninstall windows 2000 and install windows xp

I just bought a used laptop with windows 2000 pro installed on it. The
hard drive has been divided into a C drive with 2 GB and E with 9 GB.
Windows 2000 takes up nearly all the c drive making it very slow. I
want to remove the partition or whatever to get rid of the e-drive and
have all 11 GB in C. Then I also want to remove windows 2000 and
install windows xp home edition. Any help would be nice.
Thanks!
Di

Hello Di,

If their is nothing on this machine, just make a clean install from your
XP CD/DVD. Follow the menu during setup and you will find an option to delete
the old partitions and create a new in that sixe you like.

It's doubtful that the laptop has sufficient guts and power to properly
run Windows XP. It will be much slower than Windows 2000! You can
remove all the partitions and create one 11 GB partition but I would
recommend that you reinstall Windows 2000 instead of XP, but that is
your choice to make.

Just bear in mind the usual admonition around here: after deleting the
old partitions (and *before* creating the new one), cancel out of the XP
setup program and reboot. Then run the setup program again, create the
new (11G) partition and continue with the install.

This is to avoid getting an unexpected letter for the new partition.

11GB is really not enough space for Windows XP, especially if you plan on
installing any software in addition to Windows XP.
