You won't. An upgrade is more or less a full version, it just checks for a
prior version - you'll have to put you ME CD in your CD Drive. Win XP uses
NT File System, so probably it will wipe your Hard Disk anyway.

XP Home cannot enter a Windows Domain (or so I've been told when I bought
XP), so I guess you'll need XP Pro.
