    I recall reference to a little program on the MS site which would check to
    see if a particular hardware configuration was compatible with XP.
    Something to do with conflicting hardware which will work quite happily
    under earlier OSs, but XP is more choosy.

    Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Ta muchly.
