If I install Windows Vista over Windows XP Professional, will I lose my
documents and installed programs?

Make sure you read the Backup section of the release notes - very important
as I think if you upgrade from XP, it loses a lot of stuff - can't remember
exactly, but the link to the DOC is on www.msblog.org... near the top :oP

Well, if you are backing up from XP, it shouldn't be a problem, just don't
do the restoration in Vista.
