Don't know if this is in the right forum, mods will probably wield their big sticks and shift it if it isn't. Just want to know if there is a cut-down, bare bones version of XP yet and what I have to do to make mine the same. Some Australian guy had a website that showed you how to do it with Win 98, worked a treat as well. The reason for wanting to do this is because I want to use a machine purely for gaming. I don't need internet, e-mail, networking, media player or any of the other crap that will get in the way. Just a lean mean OS without the baggage will do me fine, should start a lot quicker and improve my benchmarks as well. So, can anyone help or point me in the right direction?
