As the world is being taken over by Netbooks. This may come in useful. Netbooks are great but they have no CD/DVD drive with this you can Install a full size version of any XP onto a USB drive. You can then install Windows XP to your Netbook over and over. This can be used on any PC though not just machines without CD/DVD drives Has instructions and also a 5min video tutorial. Your USB drive must be at least 1GB.
