XP upgrade queries

  Fateful Shadow 10:34 04 May 03

I was thinking of upgrading my Windows ME computer to Windows XP, and I had a few questions I hope some people can answer.

1. Can you upgrade your OS and still keep all your previous files, for example, "My documents?"

2. If I upgrade, will all my peripherals need their drivers upgrading too?

I may have some more questions but I can't think of any at the moment!
Thanks in advance.
