yes, put the cd in and you're away!!! and when you're done installing that, you can put in your linux cd and install a proper OS to dual boot with

I have XP Pro Corporate Edition, it's great, except i can't get my USB2.0 controller to work because corporate is a tad iffy. But i think it's just a problem with corporate, yours should be fine. And unless you got the upgrade, it should be bootable from scratch.

OEM products don't come with the fancy box and all that. It just comes with a white box or similar and it just contains the CD and the CD-key

It will be bootable
