    i am trying to upgrade a computer system at a pizza store from windows 2000 prof to windows xp home. the system consists of 4 computers running point of sale software called diamond touch. there is 1 server and 3 sat stations. if the server is off then the other computers do not work and orders may not be taken. this means that the computers are networked together. when a phone rings the phone number and the persons address can be seen on the computer screen. the system is very complex to set up. they had a problem recently that could be avoided by using system restore, however 2000 does not have this feature. this meant that i had to spend like 6 hours to resolve their issue because everything had to be checked. if i reinstalled the diamond touch software on the server than everything would be lost, meaning they would have to rebuild there menu, prices, employee passwords etc.

    my question is, if i use an xp cd to upgrade from 2000 to xp, will the system keep all the settings so that the system would still work, or would i have to do allot of work after upgrading the system?
