Default installing XP Pro over an earlier version

Is it possible to install copy of a later version of Winxp Pro (SP2 included) over an earlier Winxp Pro (sans SP2)?
Clean install is always an option, but that way one is spared the trouble of re-installing other software. Please advise.

why not just download service pack 2 or copy it to a cd?
