First of all you should run a test on your system to see that it can handle xp efficiently http://www.pcpitstop.com/xpready/default.asp

Then if so all you need to do is boot from the xp cdrom, select install, format the partition and clean install xp. It will ask for proof of the upgrade. At this point you slip in the ME cd to prove and follow the propmts to reinsert the xp cd and install.
