Question about re-installing Win XP Home

Hi. I need to re-install Windows XP Home Edition on my P4 1.7Ghz Dell. Unfortunately, I lost the Windows disk that came with the PC. I have, however, found a Windows XP Professional disk. Can I use the XP Pro disk to re-install Windows? The XP Pro disk is the upgrade, not the full edition.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

If you don't have the license or key for the XP Pro CD then you're out of luck! I'm not sure about going from XP home to Pro though.
