I am looking to install a firewall program. Online armor free was suggested. Is there a way to uninstall the one that came with windows xp, or can I just intall online armor and the one with windows will be disabled? Please help when you have a chance.

Thank you,

Control Panel>Security Center> just turn it off
It might even do it automatically when you install the 3rd party firewall

Do I need to disable SP2 prior to installing

No reason to
