"Dell pre-install XP for you, but only supply Vista media. So a simple reinstall from Dell media isn't an option (unless you have a copy of Dell's OEM Win XP Pro CD from a previous purchase)."

Dell sends you XP and Vista media with these systems. If you do not get them, then your Dell rep has messed up. I have ordered at least 30 systems this way, and with each one receive XP Pro Media, Vista Business Media, XP Drivers Media, and Vista Drivers Media. Everything I need to install either XP or Vista on these systems.
