Regarding the Windows XP re-install post

The computer that I am currently running I purchased from Dell with XP already installed and they did not supply the XP Disc. Dell adds all of there support stuff along with product specs. and configuration info.
I do however have a Generic XP Disc from my previous Computer that was not specific to that Computer. My question is if I use the Generic XP Disc to do the re-install will it mess up any of the stuff that Dell placed on the Computer or will that stuff still work fine?

Thanks in advance
