Yes, well mileage will vary. The terms are confusing:
When one wants to do a clean install from scratch .. bare harddrive .. one
might find the install twice method works when using the "upgrade" DVD
media. Don't eneter the Porduce key first time 'round.
If you do a clean install of Vista on a PC with XP already installed on it,
you can just select to do so from the install routine and the "install
twice" method is not necessary. It depends then on what one intends with the
term "clean install" i.e. from a bank harddrive or from one with XP already
