If the OS installation disks are Genuine Microsoft OS installation disks and they are not installed on any system presently in use with the serial number then yes you can use them but each can only be used once.
Now the exception is if say you have 2 systems that had XP installed by the factory and the OS disk you have is a OEM version. Then you can use that disk to install on both systems as long as each system has it's own serial number. Again this would mean if the system is a branded system since each should have a sticker on it some where indicating a original OS, version and serial number.
Does this make more sense or have I confused the situation even more?
