ok, as many of you know, i got a new computer, and winxp, i'm trying to install it, but the approx. time till done only goes down about 2 minutes every 20 minutes... then it froze at 32 minutes for at least 10 hours, then we shut it off... anyone else have this problem installing winxp?

specs: athlon xp 2700+ 1 gb corsair ram w/ platinum heat spreaders 160 gb hd

thats all that really matters for this any suggestion would help, i'll give points for the one that fixes it

how are you installing it? when you start up the computer you need to push F12 immediately then go from there. i just helped my friend re-install it, but i dont know how different you situation is from his.
