XP Home vs. Pro vs. Embedded

Our Rev application is to be used on kiosks, so the software (which
has a lot of moving parts to it) could be used continuously
throughout a given day. We're currently testing it under XP Home and
seeing some instability over the course of use. I'm starting to think
most of these problems are external to the application, as they occur
unpredictably, without any pattern, and are difficult to reproduce on
demand. Two items come to mind: inadequate RAM (512 on a new Fujitsu
laptop) and our use of XP Home.
I don't know what else is running on this Fujitsu that might be
effecting reliability. It's an off-the-shelf unit and I'm not
familiar enough with XP to know which software I can disable (being a
Mac person) to make the unit more reliable.
My question is, would upgrading to XP Pro or Embedded possibly create
a more reliable unit, and/or would adding more RAM make a difference
(the Rev application is the only application I am intentionally
running on this unit).
