    Greetings wonderful CF folk!

    I just purchased a nice little Acer Aspire One netbook for the good woman to do her YouTube'ing and photo sharing (why are all women obsessed with looking at photo's their friends post on social networking websites?).

    Anybeans, as said unit is disk driveless and I have a spare legit XP Pro key and disk knocking around I was wondering if anyone could help me find a nice step by step guide for making a bootable USB stick with an XP installation on it?

    I should know better and be able to do it already with my eyes closed, but I would rather have a little hand-holding for this event to get it right first time and not sit there with a useless new netbook.

    I did a little Google searching and came up with conflicting guides so would rather get a good solid guide.

    Anyone able to help me on this one mercy boo cup? :oops:
