Many programs (and I have experienced this myself with Vista) have requirments that might say they require XP. While you can download it on to Vista, all of the extra security and stuff they have put on Vista might prevent all of it from being downloaded, or won’t let parts of the program work. Of course, rendering the program entirely useless. While it doesn’t happen to all programs, I am still wondering wether to use XP instead myself…
But really, Vista is the same as XP, just with a lot of annoying extra security. That’s all.
You should be able to boot your computer from the CD drive. Insert the XP disc, and then shut down and restart your computer. If the computer goes straight to Vista, then watch the boot up sequence to see if you can press a function key to get a boot menu. Or, set your boot sequence in the BIOS to start with the CD.
The XP setup will detect your existing setup and walk you through removing it, so that you can replace it with XP.
