Win XP & System File Checkeerr (sfc )

I have Win XP Home ( OEM Recovery Disk ) with SP1 update. I wish to run sfc/scannow but am not sure how having SP1 will affect things. If a file is found that needs repair, how will it be updated if it is on the SP1 update disc rather than the original OEM disk that i will have in the drive ? Any possible problems here ?

The updated files are in the folder Windows\ServicepackFiles. The .inf
files that tell SFC where to get copies from are modified so that for
relevant files it goes there first.
