    OK. I burnt the image to CD.
    I have copies of all the installer programs that I currently use on my other HD, as well as my addressbook and FF Favorites.
    I copied My Documents over to the other HD so I don't lose a lot of important stuff.

    Anything else I should do to prepare myself?

    The computer is a Dell P4 2.7 gHz, 512 MB, 80 + 120 GB HD, Nvidia 128 Video card.


    Thanks!

    D'oh. Should have read the 'readme' :mamoru:

    Instructions:

    1. Un-rar with WinRAR.
    2. Burn to CD using Alcohol 120%.
    3. Place CD into your CD/DVD-ROM tray.
    4. Make sure that your BIOS is set to boot from CD/DVD-ROM first.
    5. Install.
    6. Enjoy!

    *Note: This CD can not be used to upgrade a previous version of Windows - you will need to boot your PC in able to install - this is called performing a "Clean Install."

    Well, there's really nothing more I can say. It's been fully tested for over a month now. This version, like my (Stripped to the Bone) Edition is fast as fuck! Tweaks were applied to help speed up Windows.

    You can easily make your own with a Windows CD and a program like nLite (http://www.nliteos.com/nlite.html)

    You load the CD into the program and can add/remove whatever features/files you want and create an .iso.

    check your backups, make sure no important document was left behind.... Also locate your driver cds (mobo cablemodem etc). Aside from that, everything should go fine but good luck.

    I don't understand this though, like is it fast because there are less processes running because of it being "stripped down?"

    And by fast, you mean like everything (all programs), run faster too?

    I installed it on a 5 year old PC I built 900 mhz AMD, 64 MB of RAM. less stuff is running, startup time is very fast. Ive had it installed for like a month or so, no major problems as of yet.
