Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Not sure what you are referring to here.. No such thing as plain old XP.. You will either have XP Home Edition or XP Pro..

Xp pro has a little more security feature like, password restrictions, login attempt restrictions etc.

2) Can XP professional be loaded onto a computer with XP?
If your asking can windows SP pro can be upgraded on an XP home computer, Yes it can. BUT it is suggested to do a clean install

3) If it can will anything be lost?
It is suggested to do a Clean install of the OS, but if you do an upgrade, then no I dont think that anything would be los (depending what you have installed)t.

4) What makes XP professional more used at colleges?
Same answer to number one
