5. I am not good with computers, but I just got XP
And I also have a lot of Jumpstart
Since I upgraded the software, instead of getting a new machine, I actually had to go from 98, then load 2000, then I could put in xp.

I know that has nothing to do with your question, just a little background. Windows XP has this nice little feature under accessories called "Program Compatibility Wizard" which will help you install all of your old games.

Now there was a few problems but that Wizard thing really sort of "holds your hand, through the process"
