If you meant unusable as if turning it off and back on when neededwith some ease either might work. Is there a downside to making it unusable.

there really is no way within xp to turn it on and off short of shutting down windows unpluging it and then starting it backup to disable it, so no not really. Why do you want to disable it anyway?
