From Mandriva to vista?

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 ?
Thanks

You can download another version of xp using a p2p torrent site and using your xp serial number to validate your copy.
All perfectly legal.

why not stick with mandria?

I am running vista at moment and think you are better off sticking with xp ntil vista has had service pack 1 (coming soon)
If you can find someone with a xp disk and copy it, you can then use your own xp prodcut key to activate it.
