I got an Intel fax modem, a PS/2 scroll mouse, and a keyboard that doesn't have XP drivers yet but it has NT5.0/2K drivers. Would they work?

The modem ,will posibly find support .

The mouse i do not thing that it will work , about wheel i am talking .

About your keyboard , if it is like multimedia one , it will not work also as multimedia , with out spesial software from the manufactor .

If you're talking about a logitech mouse and keyboard, look again on thier site. They now have the winXP drivers and win2k drivers WILL NOT work with winXP.

XP has drivers for most things already built in. It will even have the video drivers but i always seem to have problems with that part when it comes to gaming

Fuk XP, its just Win2K with more make-up, looks like a pure 10 yr old newbie OS

I felt like you when I first installed XP........but I love it now.

You can turn off all the fluffy crap.....


It does have alot of nice features..... and has been more stable than 2K for me.
