|I just purchased a new computer and was wondering if it were possible to clone the drive from my old, trusty XP computer to the newer, evil Vista enabled computer? |

|If by clone you mean make an exact copy and put in the computer with the newer, different hardware - and have it all just work - probably not.|
You can try to make this work, but I don't recommend it. You'd want to use sysprep on the old hard drive before moving it, and I'm sure you'd have to reactivate XP once you did this.
Just get a new copy of XP and install it on your new PC.

|You can use the Files and Settings Wizard to duplicate all your settings (and files) from the old computer to the new one.
Always found LongURL.org to be a very helpful tool, but seems like the site itself has been down for months (kinda afraid to even check the site anymore, in case it's been hijacked).
