In one of the recent IDG email newsleetters I received there was an article describing problems some users have been having installing SP-1.

At the end was a recommendation as to how to install SP-1 with the least amount of problems

"Despite Microsoft's ongoing endorsement, some users say they will wait to see if Microsoft comes out with a second release of SP1. On internet support boards, the most common suggestion about installing SP1 is to first save a "restore point," a Win XP function that essentially takes a snapshot of the PC's drive and specifications. Then, users are advised, they should reformat the hard disk, reinstall Windows XP, and then install SP-1--and, of course, install applications and restore data files. "

What I would like to know is, what use is that restore point once you have formatted your drive - talk about dumb!
