You can call your manufacture for a Recovery CD if you bought it from a shop and it did not include this then your outa luck, you can ask around your friends/family may know some one, depending on what Service pack you have, you can do a repair install which pretty much in a nut shell dose the same thing but keeps programs/data, so on.
BIT-torrent .. what?
in a case that your orginal legit copy of XP that you've backed up
on another pc
you can use deamon tools lite
and then nero
in deamon you would load the iso
and in nero you would take the iso from the virtual drive and make a copy :D

Tips for a great answer:
You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burning it to a CD.
The bootable ISO image file you need to download is called:
Download the ISO file from here:

Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:
It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer that is working.
You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD ROM drive as the first boot device instead of the hard disk.
These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.
If you miss it, you will have to reboot the system again.
When you boot on the CD, follow the prompts:
Press any key to boot from CD...
The Windows Setup... will proceed.
Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.
Select the installation you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)
You may be asked to enter the Administrator password (usually empty).
You should be in the C:\WINDOWS folder.
This is the same as the
C:\WINDOWS folder you see in explorer.
The Recovery Console allows basic file commands like: copy, rename, replace, delete, cd, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, etc.
For a list of Recovery Console commands, enter help at the prompt or read about the XP Recovery Console here:
