i need help installing windows xp home edition



Hi...i have windows 2000 and im tired of using this edition because you can't
really install new things on it so i want to upgrade to windows xp home
edition, i have the cd and stuff but it says that:

-Setup cannot upgrade your current installation to windows xp
-Your current installation of windows is not a supported upgrade path
-Setup cannot continue.

I got this computer from a program named catapult online...i completed the
program and they gave it to me for free
and i have a feeling it can't upgrade because it has to do with that...

So can someone please help me with this problem??
I would highly appreciate it!
Thank you
