How can I copy a Windows XP Home Installation Disc?

I have a legitimate XP key but no disc, a FUBAR OS and no PC friends. What do I do?

I bought Windows XP Home (not OEM) years ago, but had the installation disc and the certificate stolen out of my car. I have my activation code but none of my friends run XP (stupid Mac users), so I haven't been able to borrow a disc.
Assuming I find a disc, can I make a CD to CD copy?
I've read this
but my windows is currently fried (bad reinstallation from a scratched disc from a coworker) - I don't have a proper OS to copy anything from.
Is it best to create a slipstreamed CD?
