No, to do that you would just have to download it via torrent /p2p. I dont think microsft will give you a downloadable version like that. You will just have to keep updating everytime you want to reformat, repair or watver it is that you are doing win the win xp cd.

It's called "Slipstreaming"- look it up. It's pretty easy to do, with some free programs. You can slipstream all kinds of things into an installation disc- without P2P. Check this out
