Hi, My friend put linux on my other friends computer, and wiped the entire disk. The system did have Xp Professional on it, but there was no included cd. Is there somewhere I can download a cd to put it back on?

Nope there is no where to legally download a Microsoft OS except from Microsoft and there are only certain situations you can do that.
If the system did not have a installation cd there still may be a recovery partition on the drive unless the drive was completely unpartitioned when Linux was installed.
If so then your only option is to purchase a new XP installation disk.
