Windows 7 Family pack upgrade with Windows XP Home OEM

I currently am running Windows 7 RC (Build 7100) 2 and want to make the jump to Windows 7. I was looking at the Windows 7 Home Premium Family pack and from what I understand it is identical to the Windows 7 Home Premium DVD, just with three licenses, correct?

Windows 7 won't ask for your old media to do a clean install with upgrade media. You need to either install Windows XP and then upgrade (which will force you to choose a clean install) or you need to follow the directions on Paul Thurrott's site on how to clean install using upgrade media.
