Hopefully, HP will provide detailed instructions on how to do that free upgrade to Vista, biggib.
Yes, the "recovery CDs" should allow you to put the system back exactly the way it was when you got it.
Don't forget, though, that any programs you added will not be there, nor will any of the data - files, images, music, etc., so you should back that up separately.
It's been suggested that if you can, you also make an image backup of your XP system before doing the Vista upgrade, too.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
