If the disk he has been given is a full installation disk then he can just boot with it and install XP home. He will need to be aware though that the software that came with the preinstalled machine will be wiped with no going back.

I Have been told that the Disc has got Upgrade halogramed, can he install with that disc or what else does he need. Bill

you will need a full version of a windows operating systen from Windows 95 onwards to put in you drive during XP installation.
