The Full version will only allow for fresh installs. the upgrade will only allow for upgrades. With that you have to have a Full version of XP installed AND activated in order for the upgrade to take.
I have heard that if you have your Windows XP COA number that you can do a full install from the upgrade disk, and just enter your number during installation. Then when you activate, if you entered a COA number that is already in the database, it won't let you activate without calling the number and pleading your case.
If this is true, the OP should buy the cheaper upgrade version, no matter what type of installation.
