XP recovery CD

I need to run the recovery cd on my sons laptop, trouble is I have two recovery cd's, I have no idea which cd is for which computer. Does it matter which is used and will running the wrong cd (sods law says I'll run the wrong one) cause any trouble.

Usually,if its not the right one the Recovery wont start.Stick a CD in and boot up,if its the 2nd of the two,its unlikely to boot off it.

Thanks Chegs ®™.
I'll try and see what happens. The disc's are the ones supplied by the computer suppliers.
