I have read into the new WPA vulnerability and it seems to be mostly surrounding using TKIP.  Am I correct in the understanding that all that has to be done is switch over to AES, and change all my windows XP clients to also use AES ?

Am I missing anything else ?

No, the found vulnerability builds on a previously detected vulnerabilty in TKIP. Moving to AES will do the trick.
