I am having Operating System Windows Vista 32-bit (sp2) and it was pre-loaded with my Desktop bought on July, 2007. Now, Vista cannot fulfill my Professional requirements. So, I want to 'Downgrade" to Windows XP Professional. As such I need one CD on Windows XP Professional O.S. Can anybody give me some hints on it ?

Google works, http://www.google.com/search?q=Tiger+Direct&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&ie=&oe=&rlz=1I7ADFA_enUS403#hl=en&gs_nf=1&gs_mss=Buy%20XP%20Prof&pq=tiger%20direct&cp=19&gs_id=1v&xhr=t&q=Buy%20XP%20Professional&pf=p&rls=com.microsoft:en-us%3AIE-Address&rlz=1I7ADFA_enUS403&sclient=psy-ab&oq=Buy+XP+Professional&aq=0&aqi=g1g-K3&aql=&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=4000cc63a6520608&biw=1440&bih=699 .

FWIW: You need more than just an XP CD...to install XP on some systems which were not designed for it and have no drivers provided for XP. Best place to check if there are XP drivers for an OEM (Dell, HP, etc.) would be the manufacturer's driver webpage for that system...before spending any cash.

An O/S disk without the proper system drivers...is just trouble.
