upgrade from mandriva to linux?

  razzledazzle 10:35 12 Jan 2008

I originally posted this in the vista section but thought i might get some help in here too.
i'm trying to figuire out which vista package i should be buying from my local store but i can't find much information about it.
I'm currently running mandriva as my windows xp sp2 died and the install disk was mutilated by my angry dog.
Can i get the basic vista package which retails for around £50? or should i be getting a different one? I've still got the xp product key attatched to the side of my computer as someone said you need this to upgrade.
Clueless here, has anyone got any suggestions ?

I meant Mandriva to Vista sorry (night shifts messing with my eyes)

The XP licence key on your PC is almost certainly an OEM licence, which means that you can't use this to upgrade to Vista using one of the Upgrade packages.

You'll need to buy a full copy.
