what version of 2k?

2000 Pro to XP home is not a supported upgrade path. You can only upgrade 2000 Pro to XP Pro.

While these are good suggestions, it's quite possible the XP Home Disc he has is an upgrade installation and may not be the full install. Quarters - as you can see in the attachment and what everyone else has said, not only should you not upgrade but you can't upgrade. If the CD is an upgrade install, you have no use for it. If it's a full install, follow the advice above and backup/do a clean install.

Upgrade versions are full versions. They just need a valid product license key for installation, they do not have to be installed on top of an existing installation.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
