Default How does windows xp clean installing registration work?

I am looking to perform a clean install on the same pc that initially had the program installed. Will registering it be the same as it was before (entering in key) or will i encounter problems due to it already having been installed on the same pc? Is the registration information contained on the cd or simply by entering a key?Thanks.

So your looking to reformat? It should be flawless. The registration info is at microsoft. I wouldn't worry about a thing.
