End of support looming on 54832B/D, 54855A, XP load?

I have a number of scopes, 54832B, 54832D, 54855A, etc, where the Agilent web site lists end of support on Dec 1st, 2011.

Is there anything I should be doing between now and then to be sure I'm up to date on everything?  That is, what turns into a pumpkin on 12/1/2001?

Related question: We have one or two 54832B/D scopes that had their hard drives replaced.  We installed XP Pro ourselves and loaded the scope app on top of it.  It "mostly" works right on these system but a few things do not, like VNC and some odd little cosmetic things.  Is there a way to get the "official" XP Pro OS load for these scopes so that they work perfectly right?  That is, a more reasonable way than spending ~$700 for the hard disk replacement kit for every scope?

Thanks.
