Well there is a double edged sword here.

First you can download any version of XP Home and your serial will work. But it will give you a problem during activation. Since the hardware will be all new and not was was originally activated with that Serial you will have to call M$ themselves and get a code to get it activated.

Any Torrent site would have it for download. No HTTP download though.
