    Getting Set (WinXP Pro)

    It ain't really mine... but my daughter's...

    Her Dell came with XP Pro... and, being dangerously curious, I wanted to set up the Recovery Console (at Startup)... So I went to the Help screens, and tried to do what I was told (one of a few ties for that), but could not seem to have all the pieces I need(ed)...

    The instructs started in about Group Policies and such... isn't there an easy way, much like doing the same in 2K? If not, where should I start for all this? Also, I noticed at startup that there IS a (partition?) set of Dell progs for set up etc...

    Are these built into the OEM of XP? 'Cause they told me "no problem, the set up is 'automatic' if you needed to re-format the drive etc...". If not, then there *must be* a separate partition, which is NOT what they had told me, I do not believe...

    Baffled and stumbling along...

    Chuck,
    If you have an XP product CD you should be able to install the recovery console. If you have a recovery CD you may not be able to. Here's an MS article: How to install and use the Recovery Console in Windows XP
