Hi,
I want to connect 3 computers using a Buffalo Wireless modem ADSL Router. 2 of the computers have XP Pro install and the 3rd has XP Home. I would like to upgrade the 3rd to XP Pro for the networking benefits.
Do I just shove the disc in and hope for the best or is there a better way.

A better way would be to do a clean install - lose what is on it now and have a new install.

i upgraded xp home to xp pro on my office computer to get the networking benefits of pro. The upgrade gave no problems and went seemlessly.
