I have a genuine windows xp sp2 and have tried to install DirectX 10. It had "reported" that it installed and then i restart my computer. When i went to the DxDiag it said I had DirectX 9.0c. So i wouldn't recomend installing DX10 on XP. Only install it on vista.

Even if you had a DX10 graphics card and managed to get DX10 to install on XP, you would still need a DX10 driver. Where would you get one? ATI or nVIDIA won't be making one. Maybe somebody could hack one, and that is presuming you could run XP on such a driver.
