Does a Retail XP Home CD include
MS System Works??
(word processor, spreadsheet etc)
I realize this is not the same as MS OFFICE,
but does XP include the System Works or is
this a separate item to be bought?

This is a seperate thing, you do often get it bundled with a new "Branded"
pc (dell, hp etc) but it's not part of the OS.

If you're referring to Microsoft Works, yes it's a separate package. It's
not included with the Operating System. However, if you have a PC from
DELL/HP/Compaq etc, they may provide a Restore CD which may contain
additional software such as Works, MS Office suite etc..
