Windows XP Recovery Disc?

I got to a very small private school and they have a few computers (mostly Windows 2000, but they have at least 4 XP ones as well). My question is can I download an image file (.iso perhaps?) that only has the feature to recover the OS? If so can I get a link? I haven't been able to find one for XP.

I'm the tech guy at the school so it would be very helpful to have this. Btw all the computers were donated so we don't have an official Windows XP Disc.

Thanks in advance for the help

Personally I would post this on Bleeping Computer forum site, and they may provide you with a link.

Thank You

Okay thanks. I will post there later. I'm kinda busy atm.

We don't recommend any recovery disks from that site.
Second if all the systems are loaded with the same version of XP all you need is to borrow the same version from someone to reload the system. The systems should have their own reg key so that should not be a problem.

From Beeping Computer? I'm assuming Beeping Computer because I've used the Vista Recovery Disc from NeoSmart and it fixed a friend's computer in a few minutes.

EDIT: All the XP computers are Pro. If I get a Pro Disc with SP3 integrated would that work?
