Many thanks

The upgrader's edition should be fine.

Just keep in mind that upon using the upgrader's edition of Vista your copy of XP will be invalidated.

Vista solution

If you have Windows XP Pro, sure you can upgrade. It should cost cheaper than buy full version. Just make sure you run compatibility check before upgrade and your pc will handle it. I getting Vista upgrade from Toshiba, and I just hope they will have all necessary drivers with it.
