Please don't.  It would be a far greater service to simply use those PCs
as thin clients and format those drives.  Why pass on the problems of
Win XP to someone else?  ;-)  

I recently converted 6 XP PCs to thin clients.  I have not yet formatted
the drives but that day is coming.  I want to make sure XP never
returns; 6 PCs are not much of a dent in the MS numbers, but its 6 less
Windows machines that I will have to look after or be asked to fix...
