reinstalled Windows XP.  

If someone could decipher this mystery, I would really appreciate it.  My
only other alternative is to throw this computer away and get a new

Thank you,

P.S. I'm a novice at this programming, and want to get past this initial
install so I can practice some serious coding (e.g., PHP&MySQL for
Dummies, etc.).
