You're welcome, Autlense!

and FYI, props to Mike Connor-- VMWare Player is awesome. On the website to d/l it it even says it's "better than Windows XP Mode" (haha!) but XP Mode is just much simpler. Either one would work for you

I got a problem, it turns out you can only use Windows XP Mode on computers running Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.

If you want to install XP on a virtual machine, then you need a valid license for it. If you don't have one, you can't do it.
