Since you have a valid key, any Windows XP Pro CD will work to do a reinstall. Perhaps borrow one from a friend?

Are you happy working with a non-genuine copy of XP. Buy a legitimate copy... problem solved!

@Ewen: He has a legitimate copy of XP.

@Others: I'm not sure it makes sense to buy Acronis in this case. He doesn't want to backup and restore his whole system (that would defeat the point of doing a reinstall). It seems easier/cheaper to just copy the things of importance (documents and such) to a CD/DVD/external drive (depending on the total size).

More important though, is how he is going to do the reinstall, as he currently doesn't have a XP CD.

If he's able figure out how to download "win xp genuine maker" to change his product key, I'm sure he's smart enough to figure out how to download & burn himself a copy of Windows.

I guess I assumed he had discovered he had purchased a valid key from Microsoft and used the MS tool to validate his install as part of the MS antipiracy program. After re-reading it though, I think you guys are right that he just used some shady crack to "validate" his copy.
