And one slipup and you'll need that CD. XP Pro is some 300 bucks so I'd find out how to get that CD from it's maker.

other option is if the windows registration number is on the side of the computer (the sticker that has win xp professional) with the license number you should be able to contact microsoft for a replacement xp disk (for a minimal cost). But you must have the license sticker.
