If your XP installation CD is an Upgrade version, you can do an in-place installation or upgrade. If your CD is the full version, it is best to format and do a clean install. (You can do a clean install with an upgrade version, too, but not an upgrade with a full version... ) The XP CD can format your HDD for you as part of the install.
I would recommend the clean install in either case...less chance of corruption or infection.
