Go to start, run, type regedit. That's the registry.

Then go here

From the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following key:
\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\tcpip

Well thats how you edit the registry values of each file, but im looking for the actual .reg files themselves. I want to know the folder in which they are located in the windows file system (ex: C:\WINDOWS\system32, etc.)

They will not be .reg files. The .reg files are only created when you export a part of the registry. With Windows XP the registry is not centrally located it will be freaking everywhere! A good portion of it though is in the C:\windows\system32\config folder. I dont think you can edit those files though. Only in regedit. Then of course you have the ntuser.dat file for each indivdual profile usually c:\documents and settings\user\ntuser.dat
