My sister doesn't know how big her HDD is, but she managed to install Win7 without leaving her computer on my doorstep. :-)

Go to My computer, right click on your 'C' drive and select properties. This will give you the numbers and a graphic to show you the size of your drive and your available free space.
To install on the same hard drive, you will need to 'shrink' the 'partition' of 'C' drive and create another 'drive' on your hard drive.
IF you are not experienced with partitioning hard drives AND you are not too technical, I WOULD recommend one of the two options below:
Option 1: Forget Windows Xp, Back up your personal files to a separate drive or CDr/DVDr's, format your drive, install Windows 7 and all of your programs that are compatible, and restore your files
Option 2: Keep Windows Xp on 'C' drive and invest $40.00 - $50.00 in a second hard drive (assuming this is a desktop), Select 'Custom' install and format/install Windows 7 on this second hard drive. This option will be best if you want to have a dual boot system, easier by far than installing on the same drive, and the choice of many experienced users. Also, You can keep a copy of all of your important files on both drives, thereby protecting them best.
