For a gas, I installed Windows XP64. Some things actually work! Whoa. Firefox is okay, Drivers from nVidia, always on top of their game work fine. CNN videos are okay, but both Media Player 10 and Winamp can’t seem to grok DV or .mpeg codecs. Oh well, I knew I would need dual boot for a while.
Update: I made an error by installing XP64 before XP home. Now I’m busy installing XP64 for the 3rd time.
