Help with new mobo/cpu/memory install

I'm intending to replace my mobo, cpu and memory but not the hdd. Will I have to re-install my XP Home (retail version) and all my other stuff on the hdd or will I just need to re-validate?

Thanks

Yes. And XP will need to be full version it will not load from a restore disc

The XP I have is the full version so no problem - just the long haul re-installing everything. :-((
