Using Hardware Profiles

A hardware profile is a collection of configuration information about the hardware on your computer. Within a profile, each piece of hardware (such as networking adapters, ports, monitors, and so on) can be enabled, disabled, or given specific configuration information. You can have any number of hardware profiles on a computer and switch between different profiles when booting into Windows XP.

To better explain hardware profiles, here is an example of using hardware profiles with a notebook computer. Assume that you use a notebook computer as your main system at work and that you like to unplug it and take it home with you in the evenings.
