Windows vista to xp

Is it possible to remove vista off a lappy and install xp instead. I don't have an XP disc though. Is it obtainable off the web?

I'm not bothered if I lost everyting on the lappy as it's pretty new and I have a data storage unit I could use to store minimal documents etc.

You need to use Killdisk to clear all the drive, then start with XP CD to run setup after changing boot order to CD as first boot then Hard Drive as Second.

Don't forget to first download all XP drivers for the Laptop before the above

So far so good.

How does one obtain an XP disc if one was never supplied one with his lappy, which I think they should supply?

Are they available off the net?
