  1. Unless there are some unique requirements for the Corp edition you can do it. I'm guessing the Corp editions comes with more licenses.
  2. Are you talking about "Enterprise" edition or "Professional"?
  3. The only reasons I can think of to warrant an upgrade from Home to Pro or Corporate is the advanced networking to large domains etc. and the encryption feature.

    If you were going to do it, then I would backup your most important files and do a clean install (i.e. format the drive or partition and install fresh).

    Otherwise it is totally possible using a copy of XP Pro and running it from within Windows.

    There is a chance, that if your XP Pro disc is SP1 or less you may have to do a 'slipstream' to incorporate the new service pack into a new disc.

    I wouldn't worry about that though unless you come to it. If you do there is help here:

  4. theorettically speaking the operating systems are the same, as you can install all of the netowrking utilities on XP pro from a Home disk. they are all contained on the XP Home disk, but do not install from setup. there are some XP pro features only but i do not know which ones they are.
