Boot from the XP Home CD and when you get to the part where you set up partitions and stuff, just delete your old partition and make a new one for XP Home.

You could say I've been around.

Agreed, just slip in the Home CD, make sure that you're booting to the CD-ROM and remove any and all partitions, create partition(s), re-format accordingly and install a fresh copy of XP Home.
