The other night we had visitors. They bought over their brand new Acer Travelmate (not my preference). I created Acer XP recovery DVD for the same reason you are now asking. Have you done it at all in the past?
FYI our visitors the other night told us the new Acer laptop came with no recovery CD other than useless new User instruction manual. I had to look up the info on Acer website which led me to create the Recovery DVD (1 disc in lieu of 4 CDs).
