I think I would pay the extra 10 bucks for a certified copy instead of an unknown place. That looks like it would work though

I hope that you realize that you would be buying SP2 not XP (Only the SP2 - Not include Windows XP). SP2 is a free update. This is for lazy people that don't want to or can't download the SP2. Just spend the $30 and get XP again with SP2 already installed.

If you do rebuy it burn a copy just in case you need it again.
