The way the CD can be used thanks to a few numbers.

For the upgrade, you can upgrade anything from 98 to Windows 2000 and/or XP Home if you purchase Pro. For a clean install, you must have a fully installable version of Win95 to Window 2000 (not a "recovery CD").

The full version of Windows XP will install, whether you have a qualifying upgrade product or not.

The installed product is the same. The upgrade version requires priveiously
installed Windows programs, while the other requires no previous versions.

The version to be upgraded doesn't have to be installed.

That depends. If the version to be upgraded is an OEM version that
only provides a "system recovery" CD or a separate "system recovery"
partition on the hard drive then it *must* be installed in order to be
upgraded.
