That is an upgrade cd to upgrade windows 98/2000 to windows XP home edition service 2. It is NOT a full installation CD, you must already have either windows 98 or 2000 already installed with a valid COA to be able to use this. Though, since windows XP will be discontind in early 2014, I think it best that you go for something like either a full install DVD of Windows vista sp2 or windows 7 sp1 if your budget can handle it.

Before you upgrade to Vista or Windows 7 you need to make sure your system can handle it.

 

Microsoft has tools which will analyze your computer to see if it will handle either of them.

Both of those would work, how much ram do you have and what is your CPU? Windows 7 32bit requires at least 2gb ram, and a pentium 4. The preferred setup is a core 2 duo and 4gb of ram for 32bit.
