Well, if you're just upgrading, it should be okay. That is, if you are using an upgrade version. If you're doing a fresh install, you'll have to back up your data elsewhere before proceeding.

If you install windows xp over your harddrive using that method you're going to loose all your files

Hopefully you got a cd burner, and some cds

Or a fast internet connection and a few Gmail accounts
