edit:  I have another question though...I have winxp home on my secondary computer, and would like to upgrade it to xp Pro.  Can I just install right over top?  It's giving me the 'having two operating systems is not recommended' spash screen.

not sure if it's possible to "upgrade" winxp. I had a similar problem some time ago with a notebook. I had installed Win2k pro first and then I was told to install WinXp pro, after finishing the setup I had two OS :rolleyes: and everytime I wanted to boot I was asked which OS I want to run....

If you don't want that you can edit the C:\boot.ini and remove on of the entries and set the timeout to 0. Then you will have only one OS which immediatly loads.
