Believe Dell only requires the use of their Recovery disk(s) if you still have it(them).

I take it you want to restore Win XP using the Recovery CD:
Using a Dell Recovery CD to Install Windows XP
Performing an Installation Without Using CDs (Dell Support)
Dell OS Recovery CD Creation and Manual OS Reinstall
Preparing for a Clean Installation of Microsoft® Windows® XP
Dell's Windows XP Support Center
