\015\012I know you can Upgrade to XP at a discount from NT (actually it works from any pervious version of Windows to XP) but there is no Update from NT to XP.
\015\012I've been doing IT work for a long time, and I am a registered Microsoft Partner, and I have never heard of an Update to XP.
\015\012
\015\012If you do mean upgrade to XP, here's how I would do it.
\015\012Get a copy of XP (preferably Pro, the upgrade version is fine, and you can still fine it a number of places). What they don't tell you about upgrade versions is that it is a full copy of XP, that just have a sequence that need the previous key to continue.
\015\012Use the XP disk to format, and begin the load.
\015\012During the install, it will ask for the qualified version of Windows you are upgrading from. You put in the NT CD, and it will continue the install (you just have to swap CD's back and forth a couple of times).
\015\012The previous version does not need to be installed.
\015\012
\015\012If the NT is the only disk you have, and you don't want to purchase the XP upgrade, there is a whole process that you have to go through.
\015\012You do have to create 3 floppies that have the boot and load sequence.
\015\012This is not a real user friendly install, but it can be done.
\015\012
\015\012I personaly would spend the time and money to find a copy of XP. Here again, your end product is going to be something you are much happier with.
