Yes, it is possible, and dead simple to do!

You're probably better off putting in the Pro CD in the Drive while in XP Home, and selecting Upgrade.

This will upgrade your installation of Windows.... Should you screw up, you can reverse the upgrade (Or should be able to).

Pro IS Home, just with one or two added/advanced features (Pro features to be more specific ;-)).

Hope this helps
