Vista to XP

I've been using Vista for about 18 months & I haven't really liked it & I'd have preferred using XP. However my old XP laptop has been unusable for about the same amount of time but I'd kept my XP recovery disks. This morning I wondered whether I could use the disks to install XP on my Vista laptop, so I backed up all my documents & went ahead. Installation went fine after rebooting my computer, I then spent a few hours tracking down drivers for the hardware in my computer & installing the various Windows updates. So I'm now using an XP laptop, now I've just got to install Linux & I can go back to running an XP - Linux dualboot.
