Sharepoint Team Services

I am trying to install Sharepoint on my laptop. I
currently upgraded to XP pro from XP home. However, when
I try and install Sharepoint, it gives me the following
error:

"Setup was unable to install the Microsoft Data Engine.
If you continue the installation, you will need to
provide the name of another machine running Microsoft SQL
Server 7.0 or greater. Do you want to continue?"

I know sharepoint works on XP pro, but I do not know if I
am doing something wrong since I upgraded from XP home.

Help...
