   Yes.  As long as it is the same version of Windows.  So installing Windows XP over an existent Windows XP will work, just make sure that you install the new Windows XP to the same directory as the old one.

Then I'll do a big backup and try to do that!  

Thank you, Ray, thank you very much for your help.
