Instead of a repair install at boot,will an XP in-place upgrade keep all your data and programs, and install a fresh copy of XP ?

It should, but I have never done this, so cannot be absolutely certain of the veracity of microsoft's claims.

Note that it refers to reinstalling SP2, whereas nowadays you will need to reinstall SP3 as well and any subsequent updates.
