Re-installing XP

Is it possible to re-install xp without un-installing the original. I could do this quite easily with 98se but have'nt a clue with this o/s.
Thank you

Just run setup as an upgrade (if you have a proper XP disk) and dont format the HDD

If it is a restore pack you will overwrite everything and it will be like it was when you got your PC

Thank you for your quick response. I have the xp disk and you have answered my question nicely.

Thank you
