now that winxp is on beta/esr only we can reduce the pool size.  Right now our largest outstanding backlog problems are on linux64, lets go there first.

Amy: do these XP machines need to change subnets in order to be re-imaged as linux?
Flags: needinfo?(arich)
Windows and linux are on separate VLANs, yes. If you're changing from one windows version to another, no.

Unless there's a reason to choose a different set (rack position or some such), let's re-image:

t-xp32-ix-041 - t-xp32-ix-060

to

talos-linux64-ix-070 - talos-linux64-ix-089

Side note: we're getting some (AFAICT) unnecessary XP traffic on Try. Kim file bug 1337424 to change Trychooser to make it more clear that XP is almost never needed.
When the VLAN change bug gets closed, buildduty should be able to reimage these machines as Ubuntu 12.04 using the normal reimaging method.
Made the inventory and nagios changes for these.
Conversion is done,thank you Amy for the changes on inventory and nagios.
