I'm buying a new laptop soon. Will I be able to use the XP disk that comes with it, to upgrade my desktop (currently WinME)to XP?

no, you need to buy a new license to install on the desktop.

Thaks SG. Is the licence just that, or is it a full upgrade pack with a new CD? How much are we talking?

Upgrade pack. You can buy OEM windows XP for £49 roughly but MS stipulate that this must be installed only on a new computer.

One thing STAY AWAY from ebay when buying windows.

As stated OEM is now ONLY for a new computer. You must buy a retail upgrade for your desktop.
