Most apps will, XP has a compatibility mode that you can set for apps if
needed.

If you have the XP CD you can run the upgrade advisor from the CD.
If not you can check by using the upgrade advisor download indirectly here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/howtobuy/upgrad...

or here directly
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/howtobuy/upgrad...

However I would suggest, if you have a friend with an XP CD, borrow it and
run the advisor from it, the Advisor download is approx. 32MB.

To add to my previous response.
Please ask all XP related questions in an appropriate XP ng such as:
microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers
microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support
microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics
microsoft.public.windowsxp.general
microsoft.public.windowsxp.accessibility
