    Just a heads up if you are planning on doing an upgrade of an XP machine like
    I did where the only active account is administrator. The install went along
    just fine but after it completed I was unable to logon to my machine because
    Vista apparently locks out the Administrator account if it was activer prior
    to install. As this was the only active account on the machine at the time, I
    couldn't do anything. You would think that the upgrader/installer could
    detect this condition and prompt you to create a new account just like it
    does during a fresh install. Oh well. Live and learn.
