NEVER leave a hard drive in a machine when you sell it. Unless you purchase some really expensive 'clean up' software you will ALWAYS leave a trail on your pc. Formatting a hard drive is not enough to wipe information. If you have ever bought anything online using that pc, your details will be stored somewhere on the hard drive, so you are effectively giving away your bank details. Buy a new hard drive (smallest cheapest you can find) and swap it with the one currently in your machine. Install XP on that, and add the cost of your new drive to the selling price of the pc. You then have a spare hard drive to put in your next machine.
