Laptop Clean Install of Windows Xp professional

I am running vista home premium on my Acer 5100-5674 laptop.

I have windows XP Professional upgrade disc.

Can I do a clean install using this disc. It is a legal copy and I have the product key.

What I understand is that a qualifying copy of a previous OS is needed to allow the installation of XP prof. I have Windows Me on my older PC and the re installation of windows me disc. Would this be considered a qualifying disc?

Has anyone had success in downgrading so to speak.. from an upgrade disc.
