we have an Asus Eee 1001 Netbook & an Acer Aspiron One D255 preloaded with XP.

Is XP on these same as on my desktop?, i.e Can I use the desktop XP Iin a bootable mem stick to Repare or install XP on any of them if the need arises?

The netbooks have XP 2002 & so does my XP CD I used several times on my 3desktops for repair or installed after formating, & is this one I used to create my usb flash HDD.

Won't this do in emergency? ..........nick
