I own the copy of xp, but don't have the original OEM #......It was tossed years ago....I also own the Vista copy, that doesn't work. I just need to know how to install the wifi so I can use it. I have the #'s for the vista. Please refrain from calling me a PIRATE!!!! I already own my software and only need to configure it so that vista will work with my wifi

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
