The time to upgrade my desktop from Win98se to Win XP Home has come. I have XP on a Dell disk that came with a laptop. Can it be used? Or, do I buy new software? Can I do it myself? How much trouble am I going to have if I do it myself. Will I have less trouble if I take the computer somewhere and have it done? Personal experiences appreciated.
