Anybody know how to reinstall xp over the top of an exsisting installation. So not to lose documents. Microsoft says boot from xp cd then chosse r then follow instructions. however this just puts me in to the recovery console.

could you not just repair the bits that are not right...

Do not press R, continue as if you are going to reinstall xp afresh and it will then give you the option to replace your existing installation or reinstall over the top.
