Upgrade from Home to Proffessional

I have purchased a laptop with Windows 7 Home, but I have a genuine dvd and license for Windows 7 Proffessionsl.

I am looking for any tips, pointers or warnings before I go ahead and install Professionsal over Home.

I am hoping it will offer an upgarde option take the new license andd go ahead and install the additional features, leaving everything else (existing software, data, etc) neatly intact. But any advise regarding this would be gratefully received by the Winbdows 7 newbie.
