|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.
At what speed did you burn the DVD? When burning data, I've always believed that using the slowest speed is always the best. Not sure if that means anything, but hey, it's something, right?
