OEM full versions are not that more expensive,you can boot it at startup,incase anything goes wrong.you require no previous windows installed,so yes you can install XP and sp2 ontop of your ME installation.ben

Yes but if in the future if you need to reinstall everything from scratch you'll be stumped as you would need to install ME then use the XP upgrade and as you say you no longer have the Me disks you couldn't reinstall everything. Advise the same as Big Ben, buy an OEM copy of Win XP, in order to qualify for an OEM copy all you need to do is order some hardware as well, like a new hard drive, some memory or a new DVD or CDRW drive or even a graphics card.
