do you put the disk in and then reboot computer to the cd ,and do a repair install .
If it will not boot to the cd then you need to enter the bios on bootup and change the boot order to cdrom as first boot .
Make sure you have backedup all important data before you proceed just in case .

sorry your question is a bit mixed up .,can i have windows xp on my computer now ,???
not sure what you mean ,if you mean can you refresh you install of winxp with a win 2000 cd the answer is no!
If you mean can you remove xp and loose winxp and all files and programs and do a fresh install of win2000 the answer is yes!
