All legit copy's of XP are going to have to be registered ... even if you burn your own CD (reboot or install) it still will ask for an authentication number after install and once the login window appears. The modules that enable the reboot disc to work are the same ones that are at work when you install XP.
On my xp its a make your own reboot disc so the disc isnt registered
I make my own install disc's for windows so i can slipstream the Service Packs into the installation (saves alot of time) and i still have to enter an authentication number on every re-install.
You can try it ... but if you don't have an unlock code i would suggest sticking with ME - Once you put XP on there it may or may not accept ME again without a low level reformat.

Oh and as far as I know you can't upgrade the me to xp unless it's an upgrade disk. IF you want to completely wipe out everything then you can put xp on over whatever you currently have. However if it is like I suspect and you have made a recovery disk it is keyed to the hardware in the computer it was made on and will not work nor would it be legal even if it did.
