grab a live distro, install it to usb stick, boot it, mount your windows partitions and transfer away. for live distros i prefer kali or slax but there are many others. this will allow you to get your files off the xp machine so you can go ahead and install VL 7.1 afterwards

HPLIP 3.14.10 reports PyQt-DBUS missing when hp-check is run.I am on SOHO-B4. Reported same problem on 7.1-STD. /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages show it there.No print. HPLIP also does not like Slackware derived not supported. Something else to try would like to use HPLIP.

Thanks retired1af.

Unfortunately, I do not want to install Linux to the destination PC, yet.  I need to be able to boot it to transfer several files and a lot of pictures.  Then I'll instal 7.1. 

The destination currently has XP that will not boot.  It only has USB slots, wireless and Ethernet.

Excellent work! We can add that line to the install script probably.

If your computer will boot from a USB drive, you can use a Linux machine to write the ISO to a flash device:
Code: [Select]
dd if=(name_of_iso_file) of=/dev/sdX.. where /dev/sdX points to your flash drive, as in /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc etc.. make sure you get that last letter right, it will erase everything on the drive, no warnings, no questions. You need to use the root account, use command "fdisk -l" to identify the drive.
