Upgrading to any other version of Windows will not work well from Windows ME. You can upgrade to windows xp but there will be so many problems that it will drive you nuts. Much less stress by just formatting the hard drive and installing XP fresh. If you have a CD Burner, just copy all the stuff you need to be saved (keep in mind you can't backup programs, ONLY FILES, you will need to reinstall the programs afterwards) onto CD's and then reformat your computer and copy the files back after it's installed.
