you input good strategy,
but depend of the operation system version.
if the user has window 95 install, wish to upgrade to xp.
he want to keep all his files.
as the book i have state, require to upgrade to 98 then xp.
It better to install a new HD. copy the important files.
Follow the step of performance clean window installation or fresh copy.
Thanks for your input.
if their hardware is not match for xp standard,
Explain to them, their system require to go computer-Father-Time.
To keep with technology their system require the following.
going beyown vista and window 7 or window 3D or window 8 or what ever
at reasonable cost, say they will regret spending a few dollar of standard computer usage.
