    OK...I ran the automatic upgrade and it has, so far, worked like a dream EXCEPT it picked up my User Accounts ONLY from Windows 2000 and I can't find any way to log in as Administrator so that I can do something useful.
    Also, when I click Start/AllPrograms the menu of programs runs over the right side of the screen and there seems to be no way to move it to get at the right hand half of the menu.

    My XP-P RC1 has two logon options. The 'welcome' and the 'classic'. Your old friend, the Administrator, is hiding out over there in the 'classic' option. You can pull up the Users panel in Control Panel, and change the way you logon, and make the dude visible.

    P.S. If you have no user with admin privilege, and are in the 'welcome' screen, you can reboot and bring up in safe mode with F8. This enables administrator logon. Then do above.

    Good idea to add a named user with admin privilege.

    If your menus are that big, why don't you organise them into sub menus to get them onto the screen. Use Explorer if you want, but I would use the right mouse context menus on the All programs menu to create new folders and drag applications or application groups onto these new folders.

    The new PowerToys Kit has a switch to show the Administrator user in the Welcome window. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp>PowerToys</A>
