XP Home/Pro Fat32/NTFS What To Do?

Hi guys. A bit of advice please........

I'm taking delivery of one of those Aldi Medions in the next week or so (I hope) It comes with XP Home.

The Scenario
I have been using Pro for quite a while & to be honest i prefer Pro. I also have a spare SATA hard drive (250 gig) that I want to stick into the machine with a relevent card if there is no motherboard connections (the spec stated doesn't give enough details).

The Problem.
If I stick a pro upgrade & go from Fat32 to NTFS to allow the operating system to see 250 gigs will I loose all my settings & information on the computer or will data be saved albeit in a different format?

You should not lose anything. As ever, backup anything important.
