Can I install the upgrade version on a clean HD? I have two clean win 98 SE CD's (not pirated).

When installing the upgrade, does it need the original 98 cd for verification only so I can install XP Pro clean on the drive or does Win98SE actually have to be installed on the drive for the upgrade to work?

I would like to start with a clean install of XP Pro and since I have two full versions of 98 I'd rather spend 100 dollars for the upgarde cd verses 300 dollars for the full XP Pro.

Yes, Just start the install of XP pro, at some point it will ask you to insert your original cd for verification only.
