Is there a way to create a partition on my hard drive. and on that partition have the files necessary for XP OS, in the event that I want to do a clean re installation of XP?

Can be done easily from the XP install disk. But not all files on the disk would copy to that 'install' partition.
If possible to do a complete copy, you are looking at a bit less than 30 GB of needed space.. to include the service packs.
Then all those security updates that are now hard to find. Best would be to do a full backup of a known good setup.

after that you can copy the install CD to that partition, the only tricky bit is to have it bootable from that partition
There's more than enough info out there though.
