    a simple question. If I install windows xp either as a fresh install or for
    a windows 98 SE upgrade, should I leave the ACPI setting as enabled, or do I
    disable it? Also - do I need to install the VIA drivers?

    Yes, leave acpi on (as is) and do a clean install - no upgrade over SE!
    It saves u pain an possible compatibility issues. I went trough this last
    XP has those drivers on board but you don't do anything wrong by getting the
    latest one and update it.

    Ok thanks very much. I will also check Via website or epox site and see
    about new drivers. What about the sound drivers? assume I use windows

    Alan, in general terms, if there are newer drivers available for XP then
    do install them! XP has a lot drivers on board but naturally they are
    outdated by now for most devices. It is always a good idea to visit
    manufacturers' web sites and get the latest before switching the OS
