    Put the windows cd in the drive, restart, make it boot from the cd, in windows setup somewhere it asks if you want to repair the current windows installation...do that.

    It writes back all of the XP files in the windows folder and changes some registry things back to default. All drivers are reisntalled too (to the xp version).

    it leaves all installed programs and all of your files intact.
