    Using Windows XP Home Edition

    Excellent book for beginners and up. Great for details in configuring your settings for your computer,installing Windows XP with the Service Pack SP1,and all the things you can and can't do .Ususally I borrow books from the library, but this one I will have to buy.Besides the library won't let me renew this book because everybody else wants to check it out too.
