    Some manufactures, like Dell I believe will have a recovery partition or file to reinstall to factory settings. What issues are you having that you think you need to do a clean install of XP again?

    If you have a valid product key code for your machine, Then all you should need is to get a valid Windows XP CD / DVD.  You will need to verify with Microsoft that the Product Key Code is valid.  Then you will need a valid XP CD / DVD of the approx same build as the key.  Example - if the product key is for Windows XP SP1, then the XP CD / DVD also has to be Windows XP SP1. otherwise it may not work.
