    you just have to have an eariler versions install disk, at some point during installation it will ask for it and you just have to put in the windows 95/98/2000/nt disk and it will check it then ask you too put the xp disk back in and you are good to go.

    Keep in mind this offer is for college students with a valid student id #. At the time of checkout you will have to furnish the id # and the school name.

    Be aware that a bogus copy of Windows 98, ME, or 2K may create problems in activation. The old key may become part of the new key.

    College is not a requirement, any student/school should be eligible.

    "You can use this upgrade if you are upgrading from Windows 98/98 SE, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 2000 Professional. or Windows XP Home Edition."

    I must have missed the place where it said one was required.
