False Positive HIV TEST - TB Vaccine?

Does anyone know if I will get a false positive on me HIV Antibody test if I was vaccinated for TB when I was kid.  A couple years ago I got a false positive on my Tuberculin Skin Test (TST).  The doctor took a lung x-ray and found nothing no sign of TB in the past or ever.

I want to get a OraQuick HIV test.  Just to get this crazy HIV scare out of my mind, but now I am too scared I might get a false positive for the OraQuick test.

My original post is http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/611716

Please help.  Anyone ???
