Question:

Hi, I have purchased a new computer. I would like to remove
the hard drive from the old system and install it into my new
computer. What steps do I need to complete before, during, and
after installation? The new system runs XP Professional and
the old system runs 2000 Professional. Detailed instructions
would be appreciated. Thank you!
