When I tried to install SFU on an XP Home installation, SFU did *refuse* to 
install.  I upgraded to XP Pro and was running SFU the same day.

This was with SFU version 3.5, so if someone knows how to get around that,
I'd be glad to hear it.  Otherwise, take the information from MS as current
and truthful.
