Install a new Windows XP Pro over existing XP Pro?

Can I install a new full version Windows XP over an existing full version Windows XP Pro. The existing XP Pro came installed with the computer, but have no copy to use to fix problems. If yes to the new XP installation, would the new installation retain my original settings and updates? Any help? Thanks, Jake

Providing you have an XP Disk, then yes.

You can repair or clean install.

As Powerless suggests it is easy(?) to reinstall XP, but Pleeeeeeese do a backup of your important documents first.
