XP upgrade queries

I was thinking of upgrading my Windows ME computer to Windows XP, and I had a few questions I hope some people can answer.

1. Can you upgrade your OS and still keep all your previous files, for example, "My documents?"

2. If I upgrade, will all my peripherals need their drivers upgrading too?

I may have some more questions but I can't think of any at the moment!
Thanks in advance.

1. Yes you can if you install "over the top" your documents will be preserved. However, it would be wise to make a backup. Many regulars on here caution against "over the top" installations but I've done this without problems.
