Uninstalling XP

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Am sick and tired of XP and want to return to ME (upgrade from it to XP using
cd). Please don't tell me that it's extremely complicated or can't be done.
I'm no pro--learn by trial and error. Xp is is a fouled up mess on my pc
including Service Pack 2. I couldn't describe this in a hundred pages so
please tell me how to get rid of it and all traces if possible. What is a
clean install? How do I save my files if I uninstall. Any help will be most
greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dara Smythe

    select to install ME.

    Thanks for answering so quickly. Seems it used to be there in add/remove but
    is no longer. I tried to install ME from the disc but it didn't work. If I
    do get it to work, should I save my files to disc first?
