Windows 2000. Very fast and streamlined system for running that one app that I need (MS Money 2006), plus no activation, no memory hogging, and basically bug free.

Where in the world can you get the windows xp with serv pack2 to install on the mac. Does anyone have a link? I am scared to death of buying the wrong os. I have seen xp boxes that say, OEM, for builders, upgrades, full install without the service pack, service pack alone, system restore disks. Most companies won't take software back once it is opened, but for a computer idiot like myself, the only way to see if you have the right one is to open and try it.
