Can I upgrade it with all my programs and Windows ME still here, or should I format my hard drive and backup my necessary files?

You should do an upgrade only if absolutely necessary. The 2 families of operating system are sufficiently different that an upgrade can lead to many unexpected problems (though a great many people have done them successfully).

It is best to save all you want to keep and install XP freshly. But you can insert the XP CD and have it scan your present system for compatibility and warn you about any problems that you may expect.
